Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has said that Chelsea’s failure to sign a striker is a major problem for the west London outfit.
This is following the Blues Champions League 1-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night.
Chelsea were defeated 1-0 in Germany with a sublime goal from Karim Adeyemi.
The Blues performed well but ultimately lacked clinical finishing.
Todd Boehly has spent close to £600m since becoming the club’s new owner but they currently lack a finisher.
“I think he’ll [Potter] find some positives there. He’ll be saying, ‘Slowly but surely we’ll get it right’,’ the Manchester United legend said on BT Sport.
“They haven’t got a No.9 in this team. They spent all that money in the last two transfer windows and didn’t get an out-and-out No.9. That’s the problem.
“Long term, I think he’ll go and get that. They’re doing everything up to that point really, really well.
But again, they got undone by a clinical bit of finishing which they didn’t have in their own team.”
