Chelsea fans urge Conte to play Giroud and Morata together in the future

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte spoke about the potential of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud playing up top together in the future in his pre-match press conference for his side’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Hull City at Stamford Bridge on Friday night, and Blues fans have been quick to have their say on his comments.

The Italian brought Giroud to the club from Arsenal during the January transfer window to add to the option of Morata, and now he must decide whether he is going to stick with one striker or play with two going forward.

The Spaniard replaced the Frenchman in the 3-0 win against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night rather than getting a chance on the pitch alongside his new teammate, but Conte has suggested that it could happen if he lines up with three central midfielders.

Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on their manager’s comments, and while one said “I would love to see that”, another said “that would be amazing”.
