Chelsea Striker Injury Crisis: Blues’ Five Best Options, Including Under 19s And John Terry Up Front

Didier Drogba, Loic Remy and Diego Costa may all be out for Chelsea on Sunday, what are Jose’s options up front?

Chelsea’s striker curse seemed to have been ended with the signing of Diego Costa. The striker scored goal after goal in the opening weeks of the season, and seemed to have single handedly broken the curse.

But Chelsea find themselves up against it up front again, with Costa’s nagging injury finally overcoming him, Loic Remy hurting himself while scoring against Maribor, which in turn forced an unfit Didier Drogba to play 70 minutes.

There aren’t many options left for Jose Mourinho, here are a few he could consider.
