Chelsea have three top forwards listed in our Premier League squad – Alvaro Morata, Michy Batshuayi and of course Diego Costa.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes the Blues could play with two strikers this season if need be.

He wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “The final area is of course up top with Alvaro Morata (who can play wider if needed in the previous category) with Michy Batshuayi. A quick look at the Premier League squad list and the name of Diego Costa is still there.

“Antonio also has the option of other systems of course; he could use two up front and almost certainly will do so at various points this season. And remember the forward line of Pedro, Willian and Hazard which he sprang on us last season? Well I think that would be even better now that our players know this 3-4-2-1 system so incredibly well.

“The boss has been radical in his thinking many times, and his success rate so far has been astounding when he has instigated his cunning plans. Even as recently as the game against Spurs the tactics were pretty unexpected but they worked to perfection.”
