One question Maurizio Sarri must answer before Chelsea play Southampton tomorrow



Sarri Maurizio

Chelsea will travel to Southampton this weekend to play their eight-match in the EPL.

Unlike the game against Liverpool, last weekend which was majorly based on tactics and ball possessions, the game against Southampton will be a different altogether.

This is because Southampton are known for their physical style of play which will bring about the question on the player to start at the forefront.

At the moment Chelsea have two strikers, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud both of whom are underperformers.

Alvaro Morata, this season has been able to score two goals against Arsenal and Mol Vidi. The Spain International likes to play where there is space but Southampton wouldn’t give them that luxury on Sunday.

Olivier Giroud, on the other hand, is yet to score a single goal for the Blues this season but he is loved for the goal sacrifices he makes during games.

Despite this, the former Arsenal star needs to start scoring goals else he will lose his spot.

Coach Sarri, however, has the option of reverting to his Napoli system where he had the trio of Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Isigne at the forefront.

The Italian boss could replicate the system at Chelsea by starting the trio of Hazard, Willian, and Pedro at the forefront.

This is because Chelsea have no other options apart from Morata and Giroud, the duo of Michy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham are out of the club on loan.
