Hmm a midfielder but why? they need a good striker.....

Yeah but we need a competent defensive/box to box midfielder to pair up with Ramires just as much, and Matić fills this role perfectly. Yes the strikers aren't scoring, but the way Chelsea play is not suitable for a classic number 9 role. Hazard and co. have got the scoring covered fortunately.

might as well play a 4-6-0 then as the midfield got the scoring situation sorted ;) :L

@jak3y13oy I think putting schurrle up front as a false 9 would work well haha, at least for the rest of the season. Anyways, Lukaku comes back in the summer, no need to buy a striker really.
