Alvaro Morata was made a scapegoat as Chelsea lost out on a top four spot last season.

The 25-year-old has only scored three goals for the Blues this year, and he is yet to score a Premier League goal since December.

Chelsea fans are losing patience with Morata, and this season might be Morata’s last chance to prove himself at Chelsea.

Morata started his Chelsea career with a bang with seven goals in his first seven goals for the Blues, but the goals dried up afterwards.

Former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise believes Morata’s form can be resurrected with the help of assistant boss Gianfranco Zola.

“I think if we can get Morata scoring goals, I think that is very important,” the former Chelsea captain told Goal.

“Obviously last season he got a few injuries and not enough goals but I think he has a lot of quality.

“Once he builds his confidence and scores, you would have a real striker there. I think it has taken him a little bit of time to get used to the Premier League. Last season wasn’t his most outstanding season.

“So I expect a bit more from him. I think he can learn from Gianfranco. I think it will be great and Franco will take him under his wing to help us. If he can get enough goals, then we would start to compete.

“It is important that others share the load as well. [Olivier] Giroud is still there, they are people who can add to that tally and get more goals. I think it is important that they score as well, I think that is something that is a little bit lacking.”
