Thomas Tuchel Sends Grim Warning To Misfiring Chelsea Strikers

Thomas Tuhel has laid down what he expects out of his forwards at Chelsea.

None of the current strikers at the club are scoring on regular occasion.

Chelsea brought in £180m worth of attacking talent last summer but so far, none of them have worked. Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are still faltering in front of goal while Tammy Abraham struggles to find any minutes on the pitch.

When asked if Chelsea need a new number nine, Tuchel said, “For the next eight weeks, we just have to think how we can improve the scoring and the scoring situation, and nothing else, and then in the summer we will think further and think together with the club about what solutions are the best solutions for us.

“Is it the best solution to stay with our squad? Is it the best solution to stay in the formation that we have? Can we improve on the training pitch individually and as a group… these are the questions for June.

“For now, in April when we arrive, everybody knows that when you read the statistics it’s obvious and the guys lack this last percentage of confidence when they don’t score.”

He added: “Everybody wants higher numbers, us, you, but it’s difficult for us to produce, obviously, but we will not stop pushing.”
