5 Tall Guys Chelsea Should Consider Buying

Chelsea are apparently in the market for a backup striker, and, if the rumor mill is to be believed, their only requirement for the job is that said striker be really tall. The Blues have been linked with Andy Carroll (6'4"), Olivier Giroud (6'4") Fernando Llorente (6'5") and Peter Crouch (6'7").

Chelsea Has Two Players Sent Off After Dives, Wins Anyway

Chelsea had two players shown second yellow cards after being adjudged to have been guilty of simulation during their FA Cup replay against Championship side Norwich on Wednesday. Nonetheless, Antonio Conte’s side survived a 94th-minute equalizer and managed to advance 5-3 in a shootout after a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Let's take a look at the highlights:

Mourinho-Conte Feud Reaches Remarkably Personal Levels With No End In Sight

With Manchester City holding an unassailable 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, the managerial mind games in the race for second place began in earnest on Thursday with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho outlining how his work sets up future managers for success and how he refuses to “behave as a clown on the touchline,” both quips being viewed as digs at Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.

Where to begin with this game? We'll start with Alvaro Morata. If Chelsea had someone else playing striker, they probably would have won this game running away. But, they did have Alvaro Morata, and he missed three clear chances. So it goes.
