Chelsea’s good start to the season has taken a dent after the 3-1 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday.

Chelsea now find themselves 4th on the table and 7 points behind Manchester City as the Blues fight for the title has now suffered following the defeat to Spurs.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata started the game but was taken off in the second-half in what was a lacklustre performance from the Spaniard. Substitute Olivier Giroud added life to Chelsea’s attack after coming on and scored a consolation goal for Chelsea.

Former Tottenham striker Mido has urged Chelsea to sign a new striker in January if the Blues want to fight for the title.

The Spaniard has scored six times for the Blues so far this season, but Mido doesn’t think he’s the right man to lead Chelsea to the title.

“He’s disappointing,” he told talkSPORT.

“I watch a lot of football in Italy and to be fair to him at Juve he played very well.

“But in Italy the game is a little slower and he’s quick, so with his runs in behind defenders, and he’s a good finisher.

“But I just felt the other night [against Tottenham] that the Chelsea players don’t trust him.

“Many times he’s made his runs, but it’s like they feel that if they give him the ball he’s going to give it away.

“They have doubts about him.

“If you want to win something, Morata shouldn’t be your first choice, that’s my opinion.

“He’s good as a Plan B. He’s good if you plan to play direct and get long balls into the box.

“But to be the first striker at a club like Chelsea, you need to be like [Didier] Drogba and you need to have that trust from everyone around you.

“I don’t think he has that.”
