Paul Scholes thinks Chelsea will face a “big problem” if Eden Hazard leaves the club this summer as they already need to solve their centre-forward issue.
The Blues drew 1-1 against Manchester United on Sunday to boost their hopes of finishing in the top four in the Premier League this season with just two matches against Watford and Leicester City to come.
However, when the summer comes around, ex-United midfielder Scholes thinks Chelsea – who occupy fourth position – could have a couple of problems to address.
“I think the centre-forward [position] is a problem,” Scholes told TSN.
“I think Higuain was poor today, they almost played with 10 men today.
“I thought Giroud, at least in the last 20 minutes, would have been given a chance.
“What they’ll do if Hazard goes I’m not too sure, that’s obviously going to be a big problem whatever team he’s out of is going to suffer.
“I enjoy watching them, I think they’ve got some good footballers, but have they got enough to challenge for the league? I think they are two or three players short on that.”
