Much has been made of Chelsea's striker problems this season. Despite the Blues looking a promising bet to triumph in the Premier League title race, they have notably struggled in the striking department with the likes of Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba struggling to find the net with any sort of consistency.
And while there is a lot of talk about the possibility of an expensive new striker arriving at Stamford Bridge this summer, could the answer to such a conundrum lie a little closer to home?
Patrick Bamford is a 20-year-old striker who recently made his bow for England's U21 side. Having signed for Chelsea from Nottingham Forest in January 2012, Bamford enjoyed two successful and prolific loan spells in League One with MK Dons.
Such impressive displays led Championship promotion hopefuls Derby to take him on loan for the rest of the season on the final day of the January transfer window and, so far, he has been similarly superb for the Rams under Steve McLaren.
Unquestionably the Chelsea loanee's finest moment for Derby to date came on Tuesday night at Hillsborough.
During a tough away fixture with Stuart Gray's Sheffield Wednesday, Bamford provided a moment of supreme quality with a gorgeous curled strike from just outside the left corner of the penalty area.
The goal proved to be very important indeed, with Derby leapfrogging QPR into third thanks to that 1-0 win.

Could Bamford make an impact at Chelsea in the future? Should Mourinho give him a chance? Let us know below...
