Chronicle journalist Mark Douglas believes that Rafa Benitez needs to make changes up front in order to improve our threat in front of goal.

The reporter believes that our lack of goals needs to be addressed and that the manager must consider dropping Joselu despite the Spaniard scoring on the opening day against Spurs:

Fans on Twitter are mostly in agreement:

One fan did, however, defend Joselu:

Against Cardiff, the front two offered very little, but it must also be said that they weren’t offered a great deal of service. Still, Joselu’s anonymous display in Wales will likely prompt Rafa to give Salomon Rondon his first start.

The Venezuelan can’t do much worse than the Spaniard who failed to hold up the ball against the Bluebirds on Saturday. Whether we’ll start Muto ahead of Perez, I’m not so sure.

Against Chelsea, Rafa will want players he can trust to keep their positions in an organised defence. He may not have had enough time to work with the Japanese international, which may give Ayoze the edge.
