For the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern, the FA Cup final will make or break their season. A loss will put the campaign down as an unmitigated disaster, whilst a win will leave them with at least something to smile about.
Antonio Conte’s job could well be riding on the clash, and so he has some tough decisions to make, particularly going forward.
Chelsea’s attack has blown hot and cold this term, but it’s certainly improved following the arrival of Olivier Giroud. The French international swapped Arsenal for Chelsea in January, and it’s fair to say that the move has been a success. He’s scored goals, of course, but his general play and impressive stature have made him a real force for the Blues.
It will come as no real surprise, then, to hear that fans want to see him start against Man Utd this weekend.
We recently asked fans whether Giroud or Alvaro Morata should start against the Red Devils, and a whopping 78% of fans voted in favour of the Frenchman.
Giroud, who is rated at £18 million by Transfer Markt, has offered far more than Morata during this calendar year. Morata has bagged just 1 league goal, and his other general play has been poor too.
On Saturday, then, starting Giroud is a fairly simple choice, though it remains to be seen who Antonio Conte will opt for.
