Chelsea have been terrible in front of goal in 2023, scoring just 10 goals in all competitions, which ultimately cost Graham Potter his job.

Not only are there several teams to have outscored the Blues this year but there are players to have done so too.

One reason for Chelsea's attacking woes is a lack of an out-and-out striker, with Kai Havertz starting most games.

Another would be that the January signings of David Datro Fofana, Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke have yet to adjust to English football.

However, the majority of Chelsea fans would point to Potter's inability to coach the many talented players at his disposal and were happy to see him leave as a result.

But whatever the reason, one thing is certain; the Blues' goalscoring record has been embarrassing in 2023.

Six players with more goals than Chelsea in 2023

There are plenty of players to have scored more than Chelsea this year but here are six of the standout names.

Marcus Rashford scored three goals for England at the World Cup and returned to Manchester United full of confidence.

He has 17 goals in all competitions in 2023, the most of any player on our list.

Next, striker Victor Osimhen is flying in Serie A as Napoli sit 16 points clear at the top of the table.

With 14 goals already, Osimhen could be making an early case for the 2023 Ballon d'Or.

It comes as no surprise that Kylian Mbappe has scored more goals (13) than Chelsea so far this year.

Tottenham's Harry Kane (12) and Manchester City's Erling Haaland (15) have both scored more than Chelsea in 2023.

Likewise, arguably the greatest goalscorer of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo, is thriving in Saudi Arabia.

The 38-year-old has already scored 11 goals for Al Nassr, including two hat-tricks.
