Sport chelsea: with giroud on the bench
Who can solve Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea strikers headache?
One foot in the Champions League semi-finals and holding their top-four hopes in their hands, there is not much wrong at Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea - but one striking issue remains. Barring a shock 5-2 home loss the West Brom, the Blues have been firing on most cylinders. Their last 10 games have seen seven victories and just three goals conceded - but at the other end of the pitch the situation is more concerning.While Chelsea have managed to score 16 goals in those 10 matches, only two of them have come from the player acting as the central striker.
Absent from the group Last Saturday in Premier League, Olivier Giroud is present on the bench of Chelsea for the semifinal Go from Champions League against Real Madrid, this Tuesday (21h), in the Spanish capital. Timo Werner is aligned by Thomas Tichel, with Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic in support. Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Tammy Abraham are also replaced. In the traditional 3-4-2-1 of the German coach, it is Cesar Azpilicueta and not Reece James or Calum Hudson-Odoi who evolves in the right corridor. Edouard Mendy, Thiago Silva and N'Golo Kanté are well holder, unlike Kurt Zouma. The starting eleven: Mendy - Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger - Azpilicueta, Kanté, Jorginho, Chilwell - Mount, Pulisic -Werner.
