That’s because the Spanish striker is out with a minor knee injury.

Morata was subbed out of Thursday night’s 2-2 draw against Vidi in the Europa League.

Of course, many Chelsea fans may be happy that Morata is absent as he’s been struggling in front of goal this season.

Morata has five goals and no assists in the Premier League this season.
