Revealed: 52% of Chelsea fans want Giroud to start up front vs Man United

Chelsea started their game against Barcelona in midweek without a recognised frontman, but facing Manchester United at the weekend, Antonio Conte will need to make a decision on whether to do it again.

The Blues decided to go with a front three of Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro on Tuesday night, which  worked well, but there was no aerial threat from any of them.

Álvaro Morata and Oliver Giroud both started the game against the La Liga outfit on the bench, with the former managing to get on the pitch towards the end of the game.

The 6 foot 2 Spaniard had started life at Stamford Bridge in fine fashion, however his form has appeared to dry up whilst having to deal with a couple of injuries during his brief spell at the club.

Giroud, who signed from Arsenal in January, has impressed since moving to west London, as the 69-cap France international has been involved in number of goals already.

We recently asked Chelsea fans who should start up top for the Blues against Man United with our poll, and the French striker was the first choice for 52% of voters.
