Chelsea are currently without a striker as Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner went off injured in the first half of the Champions League clash against Malmo on Wednesday night.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel will play without a recognised striker for the game against Norwich, and former Blues striker Olivier Giroud doesn’t think Chelsea should have sold Tammy Abraham.

Abraham and Giroud are currently in the Italian Serie A, and Giroud rates the 23-year-old striker as a player with huge potential.

“I’m happy for Tammy that he had this opportunity to bounce back in a foreign country,” said Giroud.

“It’s not easy for English players to leave the Premier League. It can be a great experience for him.

“He needed game time. At the end at Chelsea it was too tough for him, he was not even in the squad.

“He took the right decision and he’s got great potential. I think he can go he can go very high.”
