Chelsea needs new strikers - Merson

Wed 06 January 2021 | 12:32

After 17 unbeaten games in the Premier League, Lampard have lost a lot of points in recent weeks.

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson believes

Chelsea

need more strikers to win the title.

The Blues boss has been under a lot of pressure after four defeats in the last six games, and most of that pressure has been due to the purchase of new players, including Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. Paul Merson believes that the Blues will not succeed with the current strikers and will need other signings.

“I don’t know where Werner plays,”

Merson said on Sky Sports

.

“I think Chelsea may have signed him to play as a striker, but that is not working, and if his best position is off the left, then Chelsea need a centre forward.

“No disrespect to Olivier Giroud or Tammy Abraham, but you are not going to win the Premier League with those as your front two.

“Giroud and Abraham do great on their day, but they are not going to be in the top six Premier League goalscorers this season, or any season.

“How many teams have won the Premier League without having a player in the top six scorers?”
