Chelsea are enduring a horror start to the Premier League season, seemingly handing the title over to one of their domestic rivals already.
Yesterday’s win over Aston Villa was only the Blues third in the league this season, meaning they still sit in the bottom half of the table with 11 points from the opening nine matches.
Part of their issues are down to Diego Costa’s failure to replicate his sensational form from this stage last season, whilst Loic Remy has struggled to impress and loanee Radamel Falcao continues to be a shadow of his former self.
It’s likely Jose Mourinho, or whoever is in charge in January, will splash the cash and bring a new forward into West London; either as a direct replacement or supporting player for Costa, who continues to be a controversial striker.
The following five players would be ideal recruits and would save the Blue season, perhaps even putting them in the title race once again.
