Morata playing the full 90 last night was a good sign. Zaha will undoubtedly turn into prime Cristiano Ronaldo for the day but as @True Blue mentioned, given our form and new style, we should have more than enough to secure three points. 

Giroud

Hazard---------------Pedro

Barkley----Kante

Jorginho

Alonso---Luiz----Rudiger----Dave

Kepa

1-0 at the half. Morata

Started off slow, but picked up the tempo after a few Palace scares. Our midfield three have been good and Kante in particular given he's broke a few Palace counter attacks. 

Lack of width hurting us. Dave doesn't like to push up and Alonso is a turtle. 

Need to kill this game of whilst we can.

What? It's offside. Ball played in towards Morata who's standing offside. Player heads it away under pressure because he's there. Should have been spotted 

And the disallowed Willian goal? 

Morata brings us back ahead

Wolves got robbed yesterday when they had a goal incorrectly ruled out

Agreed - said in the match thread we got away with one. As did you with Mane's goal. Chelsea now added to the list. All three of us fortunate

Nah, onside, the goal wouldn't have been given otherwise, so you're obvviously wrong and just doing your painful 'fishing' again

What you make of Morata 

Better recently of course. Perhaps stating the obvious but he's a player that plays well when he's scoring goals as he doesn't offer an awful lot with other parts of his game. His movement has improved recently as well though which does benefit those around him and something that has perhaps coincided with this is that we're finding him a lot more often and hence playing to his strengths a bit more. Maybe this is something that has been worked on in training. Type of player that relies heavily on service, was the case at Madrid as well and he isn't Drogba or Costa who can create something out of nothing. I'll say it for the millionth time but confidence and mentality seems to be paramount to his game, wouldn't be surprised to see him go on a lengthy and significant run again this season without scoring, up and down is definitely one way of describing him. It's nice to have the variety in attack with Morata and Giroud though who both offer different characteristics that suit different moments. Not saying we don't need to find a prolific striker by the way.

Maybe Sarri can sort Morata out who knows. Another positive thing about Morata today was that he didn't sulk as much either which again goes back to mentality as that seems to come out more when things aren't going his way. Morata has always had the air of good potential about him but at the same time that air of calamity as well, that negative side is eeriely similar to the feelings Torres used to provoke. Seems to finish better when having to play on instinct and when he hasn't got time to think, the chance he had in the dying moments today perhaps sums him up nicely in that regard. That was a dreadful finish at the end there in my eyes. xD
