He was killed in action 2004. You would think someone with Tillman's courage and not-merely-symbolic patriotism would fully support the actions of the athletes who took a knee in protest of police brutality, systemic racism, and a president who doesn't give a damn about any of that.

Antonio Conte praised Alvaro Morata for rising to the physical challenge of the Premier League after the striker scored his first Chelsea hat trick in a 4-0 rout of Stoke City. When I speak about a lot of room for improvement, it also means this aspect. I think it is good for the game. He is a very polite player and I like this and also I like that he is a good finisher and he feels goals in every moment.
But it also means Morata is the undisputed No. 9 at Stamford Bridge and the club's success, or otherwise, will largely be down to how many goals he scores. 'He scored a hat-trick and for a striker this is very important, and don't forget the last game it happened the same with Batshuayi.

He added on in-form Morata, who took his goal tally to six in seven games with a hat-trick against Stoke on Saturday: "We know he is a top striker". "After a bad injury and surgery you need time". I think he scored, I am not sure, so for him it will be a big game against his rivals. "Now he has a great chance to show that he is a really good striker, a fantastic striker".
Costa has been frozen out of the first team at Stamford Bridge since the end of last term as a result of his stormly relationship with Blues boss Antonio Conte .
