Maurizio Sarri has admitted that a new striker is the need of the hour for Chelsea.
The Blues were left frustrated by Southampton as they were held to a goalless draw in their last match in the Premier League.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted that Chelsea are in dire need of a new striker after the Blues played out a goalless draw against Southampton in their last match in the Premier League. This was the third time in the last five Premier League games that the west London side have failed to score a single goal and this shows the ardent need of a few attacking reinforcements in the side.
Speaking to the media after the match, the Chelsea manager said, “The club knows my opinion. I think we need something else for our characteristics.”
He added, “I have to think of my responsibility with the training. I have to try to improve my players in the offensive phase. We played a good match for 80 metres, then we were in trouble in the last 20 metres. We have to try to solve the problem. We were in control of every match recently, but it was not easy to score the first goal.”
The Italian gaffer had to bring back Alvaro Morata to lead the line in absence of Olivier Giroud but the Spaniard once again misfired for his side against the Saints.
