Despite the triumph over Luton Town, considering this victory as proof that CFC may require an additional attacker if the goal is a top four finish. While Chelsea has notably strengthened their defense and midfield, their offensive capabilities still raise doubts. The challenge Chelsea faces lies in the absence of standout options in the market and the need to be cautious regarding Financial Fair Play regulations.

Here are three lessons learned from Chelsea’s first Premier League win of the season

CFC still missing another attacking signing

Mauricio Pochettino has emphasized that the last week of the transfer window will witness the Blues’ active pursuit of both a forward player and a goalkeeper. While the 51-year-old coach maintained a reserved stance in his press conference, it appears that the wait for a backup goalkeeper won’t be prolonged.

Djordge Petrovic, set to join from New England Revolution, is on the verge of signing a deal valued at a potential £14 million. The Serbian goalkeeper was present at Stamford Bridge on Friday night, observing the match from the stands. Subsequently, the 23-year-old talent made his way towards the Chelsea dressing room, accompanied by Todd Boehly, Behdad Eghbali, Reece James, and Romeo Lavia.

With this impending signing, Pochettino’s attention will then turn to securing one more addition for his squad. Following his team’s victory against Luton, he outlined the desired profile for the potential recruit. The Blues’ manager expressed a preference for a versatile forward rather than a conventional No. 9, given the available options of Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja. Pochettino’s aspiration is to acquire someone capable of performing effectively across various attacking positions.

Poch after the match said:

"“Still we need one offensive player more if it is possible to achieve what we want. If not, we are not just going to bring a player in to only say yes, we have another player.“"
