Chelsea striker pleads with fans after controversial chanting

Chelsea beat Leicester 2-1 on Saturday with a solid team performance that was well supported throughout by Blues fans who made the journey to the Midlands.

One notable song sung for the first time was about Spanish striker Alvaro Morata, who had opened the scoring for Chelsea with his third goal in the Premier League. The version which was clearly heard on TV cameras as the time was the following:

But another version, with the reference to Stamford Bridge changed to refer to Tottenham Hotspurs’ nickname, was also heard at the King Power. This lead to an immediate reaction from Chelsea, who condemned the singing of the song, as well as from Morata himself not long after:

The FA has now launched an investigation into the singing.

While we hope that the version seen above can continue, we sincerely hope that fans who were singing the other song will understand that vast majority of the fanbase finds it offensive, unnecessary and unfunny. Chelsea fans do not have the best reputation, and we should try our hardest not to tarnish it further.
