Antonio Conte misses Alvaro Morata’s goal after arguing with fourth official

The Chelsea manager was remonstrating on the sidelines as Morata scored the Blues' second goal

It’s not uncommon to see Antonio Conte causing a scene on the sidelines.

However, he might think better of it next time he bites the ear off the fourth official.

The Chslea manager missed Alvaro Morata’s 40th minute goal after remonstrating with the assistant referee about a foul that wasn’t given in his side’s favour.

In the build up to the Blues’ second goal against Everton, Blues man Victor Moses was clattered on the edge of the area.

Referee Jon Moss played the advantage, which Conte was not best pleased about.

However, 10 seconds later the Blues had doubled their lead, through Morata, who headed home from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross.

Morata’s 40th minute goal sealed the victory for the Blues, who had taken the lead through Cesc Fabregas after 27 minutes with a neat finish.
