Ex-England striker Alan Shearer: Tuchel must sign centre-forward for Chelsea title challenge

Former England striker Alan Shearer believes Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel can make the team title contenders next season.

The Blues have won three and drawn one of the games since the German took over from Frank Lampard.

Chelsea have looked much improved, especially defensively, since Tuchel's arrival.

"He's [Tuchel] given everyone an opportunity," said Shearer, speaking as a pundit on Match of the Day 2.

"He didn't play [Mason] Mount in the first game, he's swapped it over with [Ben] Chilwell and [Marcos] Alonso, [Olivier] Giroud has been in there, he's changed the system slightly. He's given everyone the opportunity to impress him.

"I still think they are lacking that top-quality centre-forward to challenge [for the title].

"They'll challenge for fourth, but I think to go to the next level they'll need a top centre forward."
