There has been a lot of debate among Arsenal fans and talk in the football media about the striker situation at Arsenal. But for some reason the same can not be said of our big Premier League rivals Chelsea, despite them looking seriously short on fire power.
We still do not know if Arsene Wenger is just playing his cards close to his chest or whether he really is happy about the options up front of Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck, but I would bet money that Jose Mourinho would like to have similar options available to him at Stamford Bridge.
We saw once again in the Community Shield that without Diego Costa, Chelsea can look pretty toothless. And when Eden Hazard has a below par game as he did against the Gunners at Wembley, the Blues are in big trouble. Willian is a decent player but he scored just four goals from 49 games in all competitions last season.
Mourinho has been taking about getting Falcao back to his best and trying to big up the Colombian but he did not look any different to me than the shadow we saw for Man United last season. Remy is a back up striker at best and so Costa´s dodgy hamstring must be a real worry for Chelsea fans.
Let´s just hope that the Spaniard´s injury is not enough to make Jose sign another striker in the transfer window. If he doesn´t, which strike for4ce would you prefer?
