Chelsea legend and assistant manager Gianfranco Zola is confident Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud will start scoring goals on a regular basis soon.

Morata ended a run of just two goals in 20 games with the winning goal against MOL Vidi and has found the net four times his last four games for the Blues.

Giroud scored his first goal for Chelsea since May as Chelsea beat BATE Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday in Belarus.

Zola insists Giroud and Morata are important players for Chelsea even if they don’t score.

“You probably expect the main strikers to be the main scorers but sometimes that’s not the case, especially if you play differently,” Zola told Sky Sports.

“[Maurizio] Sarri asks the strikers to do a lot of work for the team, and even if they don’t score, they are very important for the team. I think they are learning about this.

“At the moment they are busy doing this and have less attention for scoring. But it will come. I’m 100 per cent it will come. Also they have a good attitude on the pitch and in the week.

“The strikers for Maurizio, they always score a lot of goals. Maybe not at the beginning, but in the end they score. That’s what I’m hoping is going to be the case here as well.”
