Leicester 1 – Chelsea 2
Chelsea made it three wins from three at Leicester after that home collapse to Burnley on the opening day.
The Blues won out at the King Power thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata and N’Golo Kante.
Chelsea held on to the victory despite Jamie Vardy’s penalty halving the deficit.
The Chelsea victory means the Blues are third in the Premier League, one point behind the two Manchester giants, City and United.
Chelsea win overshadowed by Alvaro Morata song
The Chelsea victory at Leicester was overshadowed by a song sung by the away support at the King Power.
Alvaro Morata has made an excellent start to life in the Premier League so far, scoring three and assisting two goals so far.
However, on Saturday the Chelsea support went too far in their love for their new Spanish striker.
They started singing a song about Morata with a huge smattering of anti-semitism to attack their great rivals Spurs.
Whilst Chelsea fans have sung about Morata in previous games, this was the first time this tune was heard this season:
“Alvaro Morata, he came from Real Madrid, he hates the fucking Yids”.
After the Premier League match, Chelsea released a statement to journalists but did not push anything themselves on their various social networks.
Alvaro Morata meanwhile, posted a Tweet condemning the chant.
Morata Tweeted: “Since I arrived, I have been able to feel your support every single day, you are amazing and I’d like to ask you to please respect everyone!”
As it stands, Morata has not posted the same message on Instagram or Facebook.
Whilst it is a pretty weak statement from Morata, what more could we expect from a Chelsea striker new to his club?
It will be intriguing to see whether Chelsea tackle this issue head on…
