Chelsea’s season has been a positive one so far in my opinion. The return of Jose Mourinho has seen them climb top of their Champions League group and they sit narrowly behind leaders Arsenal in the Premier League, but there has been a few things that have been bugging me.
For me, they a look a little short as winners and are need of a top class centre-forward to spearhead the attack – something which they don’t look as though they have. Fernando Torres has scored just once this season, while Samuel Eto’o (2) and Demba Ba (0) have both also failed to inspire.
Radamel Falcao has been mentioned to do the aforementioned job, as have Robert Lewandowski and Jackson Martinez. Any of these three would see them win the league, in my eyes.
I think that January is the perfect time to offload Torres and Ba and strengthen with real quality.
Also, the Blues need to get Kevin de Bruyne into the action. We saw last season just how effective he can be when given a run of games – which he hasn’t this season – and I feel as though he has the potential to better what is already at the club.
In conclusion, flog Torres, sign a world class striker and invite de Bruyne into the equation and I feel Chelsea can secure the Premier League title.
