The Madrid derby had particular interest for Chelsea fans because of the presence of two recently Blue players in the game.
For Real, Thibaut Courtois was nutmegged as Atleti equalised.
For Atleti, Alvaro Morata had a textbook Morata game. Goal ruled out for offside, yellow card for dissent, subbed off for targetman. Chelsea fans on Twitter didn’t fail to notice how eerily similar this was to some of his performances for us.

Morata was sensational for Real Madrid today-fouled Carvajal, hid entire first half, shot the ball to London, Faked an offside goal, Celebrated it, got a hand ball in Madrid box, asked to be subbed early coz being starter is boring & out-did Benzema.

Morata hasn’t changed one bit. Scoring offside, falling in the box & getting a yellow out of frustration.
Gotta give him credit, he’s authentic.
