Newcastle United legend, Alan Shearer, has revealed that Chelsea lacks a world-class centre-forward in manager, Thomas Tuchel’s squad.
He stated this ahead of Chelsea’s FA Cup fifth-round tie with Barnsley on Thursday night.
Shearer believes that Tuchel needs to sign a world-class striker to bolster his team to challenge for the Premier League title.
“He’s [Tuchel] given everyone an opportunity,” Shearer said on BBC’s Match of the Day 2.
“He did not play Mount in the first game, he’s swapped it over with Chilwell and Alonso, Giroud has been in there, he has changed the system slightly. He is given everyone the opportunity to impress him.
“I still think they are lacking that top-quality centre-forward to challenge [for the title].
“They will challenge for fourth, but I think to go to the next level they will need a top centre forward.”
