JAMIE REDKNAPP blamed Chelsea’s missed opportunities on the lack of a ‘natural finisher’ and urged them to sign someone like Didier Drogba.
The ex-Liverpool midfielder warned that Chelsea will not win the Premier League without someone like their legendary striker.
Chelsea missed a hatful of chances in drawing 1-1 with Man Utd on Thursday night.
Cristiano Ronaldo secured the draw with a stunning goal just two minutes after Marcos Alonso found the back of the net.
Redknapp told Sky Sports: “I think Thomas Tuchel will think how have they not won this game. The amount of opportunities they had on the right side.
“Werner’s not a natural finisher. Havertz, I love his movement.

Scoring a meager five goals this season he has not been a crowd pleaser and after just four months in West London, he expressed his desire to leave.
He has also said he is “not happy” at Chelsea and blamed coach Thomas Tuchel’s tactics, adding that the big money move was a mistake.

The Belgium international has reportedly asked to return to the Serie A giants Inter Milan even having video calls with the club, but there has also been interest from PSG who may be Lukaku’s ticket out of Stamford Bridge.
Redknapp believes a consistent goal scorer like Drogba or Diego Costa is what Chelsea needs to challenge for silverware, both having incredible runs of form in the blue kit in the past.
