After an impressive start to the season, whereby Chelsea are unbeaten in all competitions, hopes are building that Maurizio Sarri’s side can mount a serious assault on the Premier League title currently held by Manchester City.
However, despite our fine start, there is a general consensus of opinion that to make a serious challenge for the title, we need to invest in a top-notch striker with Morata and Giroud not being capable of giving us that decisive cutting edge that separates those that win titles from also-rans.
But, if the Chelsea support were of the opinion that it was a problem that could be addressed once the summer transfer window opens, it looks as if they are going to be seriously disappointed.
Talking to the media, ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace, Maurizio Sarri, as covered by the respected news vehicle, the Independent, has hinted that the club will not be bringing in any new talent once the January transfer window opens, remarking:
“I didn’t ask anything about it to my club at the moment because at the moment I think we can stay with these players and be competitive.
“I have to think I only have to help these players to improve. It is too easy to go into the market for every problem. I think we need to improve and we need to improve with these players because they can improve.
“I have to think to improve my players. It is my work, I think. The market, there is the club. I can say to the club my opinion about what I think I need but my job is to try to improve my players.”
Is it a strategy that Chelsea should be applauded for?
Is it the correct strategy?
Or is it a foolish one that will see the club fall short in a season where our start has given us the chance to wrestle back the Premier League title Manchester City ripped from our grasp last season?
