Chelsea’s strikers are yet to hit the ground running so far this season.
Between them, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham have only scored one goal up until now. The latter started the first game of the season against Manchester United, whilst the former was given the nod for the last two. As such, neither looks guaranteed to lead the line regularly.

The third option the new boss has is Michy Batshuayi, who is yet to taste first-team action this campaign. However, the 6 foot Belgium international was in action on Monday evening in the Blues’ PL2 game against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
And the former Marseille man put in an impressive performance, scoring a brace whilst also providing an assist as his side won 3-0.
The Chelsea faithful were delighted with his performance, and were quick to praise him for his positive display. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments below.
