Didier Drogba offers advice to Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata

Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has offered advice to Blues duo Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata after their struggles to find the scoresheet during the early part of the season. The pair have shared the duties upfront under the guidance of new manager Maurizio Sarri but neither has managed to impress sufficiently with their scoring prowess.

In a report covered by The Star, Drogba suggested that it is not easy to adjust to a new club and believes the duo need to get the confidence in their game to make a genuine difference, he said: “I hope they will have the same success that I had. When I came [to Chelsea] it wasn’t easy for me. I think for strikers it is just a matter of confidence and do you want to improve your game and make yourself more difficult to play against. I think that’s what they are doing and I hope they will get more success because they deserve it.”

Morata was the undisputed starter during the first four games of the Premier League campaign but he struggled to make much of an impact with just one goal to boost. As such, Olivier Giroud has been drafted to the centre-forward position over the past two matches and though, he has not found the net, he has been able to contribute a couple of assists to boost his credentials.

Chelsea saw their winning start to the Premier League season cease after the goalless stalemate against West Ham United last weekend but they have the opportunity to put things right when they entertain Liverpool in their next league meeting. Prior to that, however, the Blues are scheduled to face Jurgen Klopp’s team in the third round of the League Cup at Anfield and the game promises to be an entertainer with both teams being unbeaten across seven matches across all competitions.
