When all of Chelsea available attackers are match-fit, the team will have a severe problem with selection.
Chelsea has had difficulty scoring goals in recent years, but the West London club has never been short on attackers. Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Olivier Giroud, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, and Tammy Abraham were all members of Chelsea’s squad during the 2020–21 campaign.
Even with Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, and Kai Havertz on the team last season, Chelsea still had trouble scoring goals.
Chelsea doesn’t often lack for attackers; rather, the inconsistent play of the attackers is the norm. The Blues released Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku this season, while Callum Hudson-Odoi was loaned out, yet they still had Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Armando Broja, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling.
However, they continued to be unreliable and lost in the FA Cup and EFL Cup. The Blues acquired four new attackers to their roster during the winter transfer window when they signed Mykhaylo Mudryk, David Datro Fofana, Joao Felix, and Noni Madueke.
Christian Pulisic, Armando Broja, and Raheem Sterling are now out due to injuries, while Joao Felix has missed the previous two games due to a ban.
Graham Potter will undoubtedly encounter a selection dilemma when all of these players rejoin the team since he will need to choose just 3 or 4 players from his roster of 10 attacking players to serve as the attack’s leaders.
Mykhaylo Mudryk, Joao Felix, and Hakim Ziyech have established themselves as starters based on recent play, while players like Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling, and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang are currently out of form.
