Chelsea strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have just one goal between them this season and many are beginning to wonder whether it’s time for Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri to use the in-form Eden Hazard as a false nine.
Sarri revealed after the draw against Liverpool on Saturday that he isn’t worried about the lack of goals from Chelsea strikers.
Asked if he has thought about using a false nine due to the lack of goals from our strikers, Sarri said: “At this moment I want to use Giroud and Morata because I think it is right to use them in the first part of the season.
“They have the charecterstics. Giroud is very important. Morata in the last 25 minutes was more aggressive than usual.
“I am not really worried about it because we have wingers that are able to score. I’m not really worried.”
Hazard is our leading scorer this season and there’s fear Chelsea are being too reliant on the Belgian.
Asked if there’s the danger of relying too much on Hazard, Sarri said: “Maybe.
“I think at the end of the season we can have four of five players over 10 goals. It’s not only Hazard.
“Of course Hazard is the first, but I think Pedro, Willian and Morata will be able to score more than 10 goals in a season. Pedro is on three goals.”
