Olivier Giroud

Chelsea have a striker challenge, we are all conscious of this. It is a thing that is been hovering about for the final couple of years, because Diego Costa left.

The Spaniard was our final ‘real striker’. The 1 who would play each and every game with no a doubt, and the 1 you could normally rely on.

This season, they have 3 strikers who split opinions completely. If you see any poll on who is the finest, it will normally be close.

Frank Lampard is also getting related thoughts in his head. He’s mixed up deciding upon Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud so far, and has stated Michy Batshuayi will also get his possibilities.

But for me, it is SO significant to have a frequent striker, the primary 1, playing regularly, developing up self-assurance and getting that hyperlink up with the rest of the players, being aware of exactly where the pass is going to go, when it is coming to feet, when they want to be in the box, and so on and so on.

But we have an situation, exactly where we do not know who that primary guy is.

Giroud is almost certainly the 1 who just edges ahead ideal now. But I feel if Abraham had a actual run of games, he could prove a couple of folks incorrect.

Batshuayi is a target-scorer, but his football intelligence and capability to be coached is typically questioned.

I’d like to see a actual run of games handed to 1 of our strikers and see what they can do. It is early in the season so hopefully it will occur and 1 of them does adequate to have the chance.

But even nevertheless, a new striker nevertheless has to be a priority for Chelsea when they can sign players once more. This time, it has to be ‘the one’.
