Chelsea have been brilliant since Thomas Tuchel took charge of the team but the Blues have struggled in front of goal.

The 2-1 victory over Arsenal on Sunday yet again exposed Chelsea’s wastefulness in front of goal.

Hakim Ziyech wasted a good chance to score after beating Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno to a bouncing ball.

Timo Werner wasted one in the opening period and Callum Hudson-Odoi was denied by Leno after brilliant work down the left from the 20-year-old. After the break, both Tammy Abraham and Michy Batshuayi were guilty of spurring opportunities.

Tuchel has reportedly urged the club to sign a striker this summer with Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku and Robert Lewandowski on his shortlist and it’s so easy to see why.

Chelsea’s need for a ruthless forward was again displayed against Arsenal and the Chelsea board must back Tuchel by signing a clinical striker this summer.
