Chelsea have had an underperforming display from their strikers in the ongoing campaign.

Nicolas Jackson has seemed underwhelming in front of goal since his move from Villarreal despite scoring seven goals and providing three assists in the Premier League this season.

Christopher Nkunku’s involvement has been limited to only seven League appearances this season owing to an injury. Academy product Armando Broja has just scored just once in the first half of the season before he was shipped on loan to Fulham.
