Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has revealed that Chelsea lack a world-class center forward in coach, Thomas Tuchel’s team.
He said this before Chelsea’s FA Cup fifth-round tie with Barnsley on Thursday night.
Shearer believes Tuchel needs to sign a world-class forward to bolster his team and fight for the Premier League title.
“He [Tuchel] has given everyone a chance,” Shearer said on the BBC’s Match of the Day 2 program.
“He didn’t play Mount in the first game, he changed it with Chilwell and Alonso, Giroud has been there, he changed the system a bit. Everyone is given a chance to impress him.
“I still think they lack that high-quality center forward to fight [for the title].
“They will challenge for fourth place, but I think to move to the next level they will need a top-notch center forward.”
