Chelsea opened up a two point gap at the top of the Premier League this weekend having beaten Newcastle United 2-0 at Stamford Bridge as Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw against Everton at Goodison Park.
Diego Costa was once again amongst the scorers with the Spanish international making the game safe with his 15th strike of the season.
Costa has been a revelation since his move from Atletico Madrid in the summer whilst Jose Mourinho also has Loic Remy and Chelsea legend Didier Droga to call on as back-up.
But given Manchester City look set to add Swansea City’s Wilfried Bony to their attacking options, Mourinho may well have to look at an upgrade on Drogba in the summer – given he is set to turn 37 in May.
Drogba is perhaps considered the best Chelsea striker of all-time and he has shown he is still capable of producing the goods this season with six goals in 24 appearances – many of which have come as a substitute.
But with time ticking on his career, Mourinho will no doubt be busy scouting some replacements to move for in th summer.
Here we have identified five possible candidates.
