Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are both going through tough times for club and country in terms of goals.

Although Morata’s form has been on the rise recently, he still cuts a frustrated figure.

The Spaniard’s got five goals in the league so far, and for the Spanish national side, looks low on confidence.

Giroud’s goal plight is perhaps even more concerning.

He’s not scored in the league this season, with his only goal for Chelsea coming in the Europa League.

For France, Giroud’s lack of goals are well documented, but those absence of goals haven’t come at their detriment.

He did play a vital role in helping France win the World Cup lest we forget.

But it is Giroud’s all-round team play and willingness to come off the bench that should see him remain at Chelsea.

Whilst Morata often looks isolated up front, Giroud is excellent at linking with Eden Hazard and other.

He may not score lots of goals, but he gets the team flowing well, whereas Morata always seems offside.

Therefore, if Chelsea are to bring in another striker – they are constantly linked with them – it should come at Morata’s expense, not Giroud’s.
