Stoke City v Chelsea - Premier League
Morata made a move to Chelsea last summer

Leading the line for a football team is perhaps the most privileged role for a footballer. Being a striker gives a footballer a lot of scope to bathe in glory. After all, he is the nearest to the goal and has chances aplenty to find the net.

Even when a striker misses, he has a chance to make the fans forget about the mishap with a goal somewhere during the game. However, even then, there are some strikers playing in the top-level that miss more than they score.

While it is not a good practice to name and shame, here are the top 10 worst strikers playing in the top-tier of world football.


#10 Alvaro Morata

For someone who has already scored 12 goals in all competitions this season, his inclusion might come as a bit of a shock to some. However, it is not just a random name that I had to pop in here and, as a result, used Alvaro Morata in the process.

Instead, it is because of the inconsistency with which he has played for the Blues that has put him here. In his first 8 games for the London outfit, he scored 7 goals and also created 2 assists. At that time, he was looking like one of the best strikers in the world.

In the next 23 games, however, he scored only 5 goals and created 2 assists. This isn’t really a great return from someone who cost Chelsea their club-record transaction. Antonio Conte’s over-reliance on him means that he isn’t really getting a breather that a long season requires.

As a result, he is suffering.
