For a club who sit third in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Arsenal, Chelsea don't have the most impressive forward line at present, do they? With Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o the only real options for Jose Mourinho right now, I would suggest that they are in need of another head up top, and seeing as we are in January here is who I would suggest.

I expect Chelsea to be busy in the upcoming weeks, not only because I think they need a striker, but also because there are a few faces in the squad who aren't getting a lot of action on the pitch. It could be that both of my concerns may be getting dealt with though, as the Mirror say Michael Essien is a target for old manager Rafa Benitez at Napoli, and the Daily Star say the Blues are set to bid for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa.
Chelsea have two solid centre backs in Gary Cahill and John Terry. My only concern is that the pair are not getting any younger and I believe Mourinho would benefit from getting a young player, initially as back up, preferably with pace and experience of playing top-flight football in Europe.
When Eden Hazard signed for Chelsea back in 2012 only a few spectators could have enviasaged just what an impact he would have on the club. He arrived as a player full of potential, along with his brother Thorgan, and took no time to settle into the club. After a season and a half at Stamford Bridge, Hazard has made some big impressions, and current manager Jose Mourinho says that the 23-year-old can now become one of the best players in the world.
Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto'o - three strikers who don't exactly fill you with excitement, right? Well, imagine being a Chelsea fan. While Manchester United have Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck, Manchester City have Alvaro Negredo, Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko. Then, look back at Chelsea's choice again. But there is one man who I believe would be perfect for the Stamford Bridge club
David Luiz is causing Chelsea problems of late, making mistakes which have led to the Blues getting into trouble on the pitch. And although the West London side have plenty of cover with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic all able to play in the centre, I put forward the name of this centre-back and ask - could this be the man to lead the Chelsea backline for years to come?
Is Cahill the best partner for John Terry? 3 things we learnt from Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Schalke
Chelsea beat Schalke 3-0 for the second time in as many weeks in their Champions League clash last night, but here are three things we learnt from the game.
Last season under the 'fat Spanish waitor' Rafa Benitez, Cesar Aspilicueta was a key player at Chelsea. The Spaniard arrived from Marseille and slotted into the right-back berth with Branislav Ivanovic tucking inside to the central position next to Gary Cahill.
After Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Newcastle, here are three things that Jose Mourinho and the Blues' fans can take from the tie.
Full-backs may not get the credit that other players get but today they do, but who are the best 5 left-backs to have graced the Premier League? In my opinion:
With reports from the Daily Mail suggesting that Jose Mourinho will be given the green light to sign a new striker in January, here are three suggestions that I would like to see at Chelsea.
