Chelsea news: Maurizio Sarri backed to make THIS signing to win Premier League | Football | Sport
Chelsea are unbeaten in the Premier League under Maurizio Sarri and currently sit third in the table behind Liverpool and Manchester City.
Sarri’s side are also the only team in Europe’s top-five leagues not to taste defeat and league and cup this season.
But Hasselbaink believes Chelsea need three strikers in their squad to push for major honours come the end of the campaign.
The two strikers Sarri currently has at his disposal are Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.
“Well do they need another striker?” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports.
“I think every club that is going for the Premier League needs three strikers.
“So in that aspect yes.”
Morata though has found form in recent weeks, scoring four times in his last five Premier League outings.
And Hasselbaink is confident the Spain international will continue to find the back of the net if used correctly by Sarri.
“But for me, Morata will score goals,” the Dutchman continued.
“He is somebody that is a confidence person.
“He is so good at getting behind a defence – he needs to keep on doing that.
“Everybody’s talking ‘he needs to do this, he needs to do that’.
“He shouldn’t concentrate on becoming something he is not. He should embrace what he has got.
“He is not somebody like Giroud, who likes the contact of the centre-halves.
“He shouldn’t have to play like that.
“If he keeps on playing to his strengths, he will score a lot of goals, I believe.”
