    First of all i know this probably would never happen, but just after a deal involving 2 of England's biggest clubs and 2 great players (Sanchez and Mkhitaryan) in a straight swap deal, if Chelsea proposed a similar deal in the summer for a straight swap Morata for Lukaku would you take it? Would Mourinho take it?

    I think it's fair to say Morata hasn't settled well at Chelsea, only showed glimpses of his talent, but was Jose Mourihno's first choice striker in the summer. Similar story with Lukaku, was Chelsea's first choice target and whilst his goal ratio is good this season he's had his critics.

    So yeah Morata for Lukaku straight swap would you take it?

    No I wouldn't. I think Morata will prove to be a mediocre signing for Chelsea.

    Lukaku is the better player with the higher ceiling.

    Yeah, erm no... I'd rather have a sattled team, sometimes its time that is the problem and not the need of different/new player.

    No. Lukaku is a much better striker. The other doesn't score goals.

    He’s pretty much crumbled at Chelsea. He doesn’t look mentally strong enough.

    Imagine him at the biggest club in the world?

    I believe Lukaku was always Mourinhos first choice behind the scenes.

    And no. Lukaku is better and very underrated.

    Absolutely not. Morata isn’t as good as Lukaku. Never wanted him here.

    No. Morata is already pining for Real Madrid and hinting at a future return.

    At the minute everyone would say no. In a few weeks time if Morata is scoring and Lukaku isn’t then many will say yes

    Nope we’ve got the better player by far.

    I’d take Morata as a striker off the bench though in a second.

    Are you serious ? Shaw is still 22s. And for Matic, he did well for us.

    Not a chance. Saw last week what Lukaku can do with service.

    I'd like to see him work harder off the ball but that's true about all our front line. Hopefully Alexis will disrupt our attacking play in a good way.

    No way. Lukaku will come good if he get's the ammunition.

    No, I never rated Morata that highly, and he hasn't done anything at Chelsea yet that has made me change my mind.

    I wouldn't have either to be honest. Wasn't chuffed about being linked with them given their prices.

    Lukaku hasnt been that bad, Morata hasnt been better than him at all, and also has the extra physicality that can disrupt defenses and nick that single goal.

    Keep Lukaku.

    I'm pretty sure he's being sarcastic. Bakayoko is crap.

    No way. Morata can't score with his feet so he is useless unless we play hoofball like Chelsea does.

    One of the biggest clubs in the world! On topic, morata has struggled at Chelsea but I’m sure he will come good. I wouldn’t swap him for lukaku though.

    No. Not a huge fan of lukaku but Morata is shite. Nowhere near good enough to be the main striker for a big team. Squad player at best. Lukaku can at least score consistently.
