Jose Mourinho fails to reveal striker decision

Published Add your comment

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has failed to reveal whether Radamel Falcao or Loic Remy will start in tomorrow's clash with Newcastle United. 

The west London outfit head into the game at St James' Park in good form after securing three wins from their past three outings in all competitions. 

However, without the suspended Diego Costa, who was handed a retrospective three-game ban from the FA following his antics in last weekend's all-London clash with rivals Arsenal, it's far from certain as to whether Mourinho will turn to Falcao or Remy.

Both strikers featured in the Capital One Cup clash with Walsall on Wednesday night, with Remy finding the back of the net in the 4-1 triumph. 

Falcao, on the other hand, failed to impress, but it appears that he could yet be handed another opportunity to shine against Steve McClaren's struggling side.

Ultimately, though, Chelsea fans are hoping to see Remy get the nod over Falcao tomorrow evening. 

Remy must play

You can hardly blame the Blues supporters. At the end of the day, Falcao still appears to be a shadow of his former self.

No longer is he one of the most feared strikers in world football. Unfortunately, his confidence appears to be at an all-time low, and there may be no coming back for him in west London. 

Remy must start against Newcastle. He's a proven goalscorer in England's elite division and Mourinho's side can ill afford to slip up in the contest. Remy, with the likes of Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas assisting him, can shine in the absence of Costa.

Who should start tomorrow? Have your say below!
