Didier Drogba wants Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud to change one thing

CHELSEA legend Didier Drogba has told Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud they need to make themselves more difficult to play against.

Both Blues front men have been struggled to find their form in front of goal this season.

After scoring 11 Premier League goals in his debut season, Morata has managed just one so far in this campaign.

Giroud hit the ground running when he signed from Arsenal in January but has failed to hit the net so far this season.

And Drogba thinks the duo could make themselves harder to play against, possibly by adding another level of physical aggression to their game.

Drogba 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.”

Giroud, meanwhile, believes that Chelsea need to become more versatile in their approach if they are to have a successful season.

The Blues failed to score against strugglers West Ham on Sunday and were lucky to escape with a point.

The striker thinks that Chelsea will have to become more flexible as teams work out solutions to Sarri’s tactics.

“It’s disappointing and we lost two points – West Ham were happy with this draw,” he said.4

“We have a big game at the weekend and we want to show our strength, our character. I’m not saying it’s a tactical problem.

“Sometimes we rushed our game and have not been patient, or maybe we did not put enough pace in our game.

“Now, our opponents are starting to know Chelsea well so we need to bring something else. Maybe we need to give a bit more on the pitch as well.”

Chelsea face Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday (7.45pm) and then again in the Premier League on Saturday (5.30pm).
