Chelsea are one of the frontrunners for the Premier League title at this early stage as Maurizio Sarri continues to work wonders at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues will have their sights set firmly on securing the Premier League title and working their way back into Europe after a disappointing campaign last time out.
However, Chelsea will welcome Cardiff City to Stamford Bridge in their next Premier League encounter. The Bluebirds have struggled to come to terms with Premier League football so far this season, with a lack of goals and a leaky defence causing them problems.
Nevertheless, Maurizio Sarri has some decisions to make in terms of team selection, with a couple of players possibly forcing their way into the side.
With that in mind, these TWO Chelsea men must start today…
The Spaniard has been like a new signing for the Blues in the current campaign, scoring three goals so far in the Premier League.
Indeed, Chelsea wouldn’t find themselves in the perfect position they’re currently in without the winger’s efforts, but Sarri is yet to really open his eyes and gift the 31-year-old a regular starting place.
So, after netting in the Blues’ last Premier League fixture prior to the international break, Sarri has no choice but to insert him into his starting lineup.
Olivier Giroud has been pushed aside in the current campaign as the ineffective Alvaro Morata continues to get the nod at the pinnacle of the attack.
Although, the Frenchman did manage to score the winning goal in France’s UEFA Nations League victory over Holland earlier on in the week, so he probably does deserve a starting place in the side against a rather nervy and vulnerable Cardiff City side.
