Chelsea remain in alarming need of a striker however things are not quite clicking for the Blues’ at the moment.
Alvaro Morata can’t seem to do anything right on the pitch and hasn’t scored for 5 games, while Michy Batshuayi is now being linked with a move to Sevilla, so now the club are now thinking about a short-term move for West Ham’s Andy Carroll to be a back-up.
The imposing striker certainly has had his minutes as an impact player, most recently when he scored 2 second-half goals to give the Hammers a 2-1 win versus West Brom.
However is Carroll the answer to Chelsea’s goal scoring concerns?
Take a look at the statistics below showing the impact Carroll has actually made beginning as a substitute in the Premier League in current seasons.
