Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Alvaro Morata's performance vs Schalke - "No better than Giroud..."

Alvaro Morata

Arsenal target Alvaro Morata was in action for Real Madrid tonight, and was on the scoresheet, but what did Gunners fans make of his display?

With Madrid leading Schalke 6-1 from the first leg, manager Carlo Ancelotti took the opportunity to rest some players and give fringe players an opportunity in the first team - and that included centre forward Morata, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal for some time now.

The 21-year-old made the most of his chance in the first team, scoring the third goal in Real's 3-1 second leg triumph over the Bundesliga outfit and enhancing his claim for a role in the starting line-up on a more regular basis.

But whilst the goal will have helped his cause, it wasn't Morata's finest game and it seems Arsenal fans on Twitter were torn over the striker - some suggested that he had a lot of potential and that the Gunners should make another move in te summer, whilst others felt the Spanish Under-21 international was overrated and Arsene Wenger should steer clear.
