One Thing About Chalobah That Should Worry Tuchel Even As Chelsea Are Topping The EPL Table

The fact that Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool, the three teams everyone agrees are title contenders along with Chelsea lost points over the weekend has proven how important it was for the blues to win their match.Photo credit: Getty Images

Although, there is one thing about that win and most especially Trevor Chalobah's goal that should worry the German tactician. The 22 years old defender is now the joint top scorer for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this season.Photo credit: Getty Images

No Chelsea player has scored more EPL goals than Chalobah at the Bridge this season and it is not as if that is a bad thing, but with the quality of strikers and attackers at the club, you wouldn't expect to see defenders having identical numbers with strikers.

Last season, Jorginho was the club's top scorer in the League and that was one of the main reasons why they could not challenge for the title.

It's good to see your defenders scoring goals, but when they're leading and competing with the strikers, that is not a good thing for a team that wants to win the Premier League title.

As a manager who has experience in winning league titles, Tuchel would surely have it at the back of his mind that his strikers need to start firing on all cylinders.Photo credit: Getty Images
