Chelsea vs Cardiff City: Two options Sarri Maurizio must start upfront ahead Alvaro Morata

The Blues will be playing against Cardiff City tomorrow as the EPL return following the international holiday break.

Many pundits have predicted that the game will be Chelsea’s fifth win to further push them on top in the EPL table.

But coach Sarri is still worried about who to start up front as the main striker tomorrow.

Since the arrival of the ex Napoli boss at Chelsea, he has continually made use of Spain international, Alvaro Morata as the main striker leading the squad up front.

However, like last season, the Spain international has failed to perform except for his lone goal against Arsenal, he is yet to add another goal.

The duo of Eden Hazard and Pedro have covered for his lapses with the duo giving the Blues the much-desired goals.

We believe Sarri Maurizio has other options he can start in place of Alvaro Morata –  and they include;

1. Olivier Giroud – Sarri is yet to give the France international a start this season with Giroud already feeling frustrated.

Like last season when Antonio Conte replaced Morata with Giroud, it may be high time for Sarri to follow that line.

2. Replicate the Napoli system at Stamford Bridge – Sarri also has the option of repeating the system at Napoli upfront, the trio of Jose Callejons, Dries Martens  and Lorenzo Insigne.

Sarri might as well make use of the trio of Willian, Eden Hazard and Pedro up front.

Alvaro Morata

Chelsea underperforming Striker and Spain International, Alvaro Morata has gotten another opportunity to perform for the Blues tonight.

Owing to the fact that, he will be the one leading the Blues squad tonight at the forefront as they take on PAOK in Greece in the Uefa Europa League.

Coach, Sarri Maurizio decided to give him another opportunity despite the fact that he has not performed at all for the Blues in 4 of five games in the English Premier League this season.

Morata so far this season has just a single goal to his name, which defines his poor performance.

It is believed that if the Spain international refuses to perform tonight at Greece, he might lose his playing chances to France international, Olivier Giroud.

And should this happen, Alvaro Morata will have to look for another football club where he is likely to get more playing chances.

This is because he has the desire to make the Spanish national team but if he doesn’t play regularly at the club level, there is no way he will be called up to join the national team.

A report has disclosed that Alvaro Morata agents are already making arrangements that will see the Spain star move to West Ham on loan or to Italy in the January transfer window.
