Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has quite the selection dilemma on his hands ahead of today’s visit of Bournemouth. The manager’s choice of who leads the line for the Blues against Eddie Howe’s men will be a source of much discussion and debate.
Last summer’s big money signing, Alvaro Morata, has started each of Sarri’s first four games in charge so far. However, since his dramatic loss of form halfway through last season, he is yet to get back to his best and could now do with a spell out of the team.
World Cup winner Olivier Giroud has proven himself to be a wonderful super sub, but may lack the mobility required to be a starting focal point for the Blues. Whilst Eden Hazard is so effective when playing on the left flank it would be a waste of his talents to deploy him as a centre-forward.
Surprisingly, according to our poll, Tammy Abraham is the most favoured of the four options who could start up front at Stamford Bridge. The 20-year-old had a mixed time on loan with Swansea last time out, as the Welsh outfit succumbed to relegation from the Premier League, and has only made two league outings for Chelsea in his career so far.
Despite his inexperience, plenty of the Chelsea fans we polled are clearly keen to see Sarri give the young England international a chance. See the full results below.
