It is no secret Chelsea are short on strikers, with just Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge in attack. Even Romelu Lukaku was loaned out to West Brom, meaning the Blues will have to cross their fingers injuries do not striker.
Until January of course when the club are expected to go back into the market for a new striker, Falcao is the big name linked now, but so early on, who knows what developments could be ahead.
It will be far from Roberto di Matteo's mind right now, who will be focusing on simply getting to the transfer window in good form and with his squad in good health, still in with a fighting chance in the Premier League, and assess from there.
But with Fernando Torres an enigma; he started the season well, but has looked to have lost his edge following the international break, and Sturridge not firing on all cylinders either, it is worth the manager considering his other options.
At the forefront of these, should be the new signing brought in from Wigan Athletic, Victor Moses, who is predominantly a winger yet his versatility allows him to operate on both flanks.
Can he play through the middle effectively? That is a question Di Matteo should be asking, and should seek to experiment with, for it could give them an excellent third option.
While just 5 ft 10, Moses is well built and used to the physical side of the game, and should be able to adapt to such a role without a great deal of trouble. The reason; the superb talent in the squad around him.
If any English side have the talent available to emulate European and World Champions Spain, it is Chelsea thanks to the players at their disposal. Hazard, Mata, Oscar, Marin, are an attacking quarter as potentially devastating as any.
For Spain it was the surprise figure of Cesc Fabregas whose versatility and skill on the ball saw him play the 'False 9' role, that of a striker who isn't really a striker at all, but a player whose ability and movement to pull defenders out of position can allow the players around him to expose the holes in the opposition back line.
It is a system which Spain and Barcelona have very much made 'in vogue' and one that Arsenal have even been credited with playing Gervinho in against Southampton and Montpellier with great effect.
For Chelsea, the False 9 role could create extra space for Eden Hazard and Juan Mata to expose, and become even more devastating from, an exciting prospect for fans of the club.
Mata and Hazard are key to take advantage of such a plan, and shouldn't fulfil the role themselves, making new signing Moses perhaps an ideal candidate to take up such a role.
With a League Cup tie next week at home to Wolves, perhaps it is the perfect time to trial a system and experiment. There is no guarantee it would work, but if you don't try, you will never know.
What do you think, should Chelsea use Moses in a False 9 to help let the other attackers shine even brighter and boost their forward options?
