85% Of Supporters Would Prefer Hazard Not Here

85% Of Supporters Would Prefer Hazard Not Here

Chelsea take Manchester United up at Old Trafford tomorrow afternoon. During Chelsea`s draw with Barcelona in the week, Antonio Conte chose to play Eden Hazard in the false number nine role.

It`s difficult to argue against, given Chelsea remain in that tie. With both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud both fit, the move by the manager was a purely tactical one. For the big game tomorrow, we were interested to know, who you`d like to see up front.

It was simply a matter of choosing between one of the three. In the end, it was Alvaro Morata who came out on top with 43%. There`s no doubt, he has to be Conte`s best choice. It was the Spaniard who grabbed the winning goal at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.

Second place went to Olivier Giroud, and it was close. 42% thought the ex-Arsenal man ought to be the preferred starting choice. Giroud has apparently, impressed Conte in training with his attitude and could be in line for the starting XI.

The remaining 15% would like to Eden Hazard reprise the job he did against the Spanish giants. At Vital Chelsea we`d prefer to see him in his more creative role behind the striker. It won`t be long until we find out which way the manager goes.

The game, tomorrow, kicks off ahead of the Carabao Cup Final at 14:05pm.
