Frustrated Alvaro Morata Throws Tantrum After Being Substituted Against Burnley

A frustrated Alvaro Morata, who has been linked with a move back to Juventus, reacted angrily after being substituted in Chelsea's 2-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor on Thursday.

The former Real Madrid star, who arguably missed two easy chances on the night, was visibly angry when coach Antonio Conte withdrew him for winger Eden Hazard with 19 minutes left in the game.

The 25-year-old was seen shouting and gesturing at the home side's supporters behind the Chelsea dugout, before throwing his boots to the floor.

After the match, the Spain international apologised for his poor reaction via Twitter, and explained why he acted the way he did.

"Three important points for us. The best way to get ready for Sunday's game was winning today," Morata tweeted.

"I want to apologise for my reaction when I was sent to the bench, when I fail I get really angry with myself."

Blues boss Conte claimed he understood Morata’s outburst, but said he was ultimately happy with the striker's performance.

"Alvaro must be angry, because when you have the chance to score you have to score and it can change your confidence," Conte said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"He was angry with himself for his missed chance. But I have to see his whole performance and it wasn't possible in the past to play with two strikers. They did a great job, as did the whole team.

"Around 70 minutes, I thought that it was better to use fresh strength with Hazard. He is a player that has different characteristics to Morata. I am pleased with their performances, they played very well."

Morata, who has netted 14 goals in all competitions this season, has only scored one goal in the Premier League in 2018.
