We’re asking a thought-provoking question ahead of tomorrow night’s mammoth clash against Barcelona.
In the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, the Blues operated with Hazard as a false nine. The strategy seemed to work, Willian hit the woodwork on two occasions, and Hazard came close to scoring with a couple of efforts.
However, when Conte opted to utilise the same strategy against Manchester City, the Belgian was completely isolated, and the Blues failed to provide any sense of attacking threat.
Chelsea’s recent 2-1 victory against Crystal Palace showed how vital the presence of a striker could be. Olivier Giroud held the ball up tremendously well and brought his teammates into play.
The question that faces Conte is who should start up top for the Blues against Barcelona? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
