Chelsea need to give Bamford a chance.

Former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins is convinced the Premier League champions need to add quality to their side and should also give the likes of Patrick Bamford a chance at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been poor since the start of the season as they sit in 14th spot on the Premier League table - 13 points behind the final Champions League spot.

"I think they need another forward. Loic Remy seems to be injured on numerous occasions and he's never available for selection," Wilkins told Sky Sports Now.

"I look at Chelsea and Patrick Bamford, for example. When a side like Chelsea are playing to the ability that they have I'm sure you can throw a young man in and give him an opportunity to play.

"I'm sure Bamford, who scored 19 goals for Middlesbrough in the Championship last season, would score goals for Chelsea because he is a very bright human being."
