The misfiring Spain striker looks likely to be recalled to the Blues starting XI for tonight’s clash against relegation-threatened Southampton.
This is how Chelsea are likely to line up against Southampton
Morata, who admitted 2018 had been a “very complicated” year professionally, has been out of favour following a knee injury.
But Olivier Giroud had to be replaced by Morata in the 75th minute of the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday after picking up a knock.
After firing a shot into the roof of the net – with the strike ruled out for offside – he was caught by Jason Tomkins, leaving him writhing in agony.
Sarri said afterwards: “In the last few days we were a bit unlucky.

‘means one thing’
Chelsea fans convinced Hazard will join Real after Blues sign Pulisic
“Yesterday in ten minutes we had three injuries – [Cesc] Fabregas, [Ruben] Loftus[-Cheek] and [Danny] Drinkwater – then Giroud today, and today we were already without Pedro and [Callum Hudson-] Odoi.
“We are in trouble because, in January, we have to play every three days.”

But it looks like he will be shunted out to his favourite wing position with the return of Morata.
