Chelsea suggested to make defensive revamp

Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann has told Chelsea to make their defensive line better.

“Even if they don’t [qualify for next season’s Champions League], I expect Frank Lampard to keep his job,” Hamann told RTE Sport on Tuesday night.

“We must not forget, in his defence, that [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek, [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, [Christian] Pulisic and [N’Golo] Kante were not unavailable tonight. That’s four top players that weren’t unavailable.

“I think they have got to massively restructure in defence. They haven’t got a ‘keeper as it stands now. They’ve got a 38-year-old [Willy Caballero] in goal who might be able to finish the season but you don’t want to go into the new season with a 38-39-year-old.

“Kepa [Arrizabalaga], is he good enough? It remains to be seen, we don’t know.

“Everyone is raving about [Antonio] Rudiger saying he’s our [Germany] number one centre-back going into Euro 2020. I don’t see what other people see.

“I think [Andreas] Christensen is a very talented player but he lacks help and [Cesar] Azpilicueta is coming to the end of his career.

“So I think in defence they need reinforcement and at least two or three players.”

  1. Its so glaring that Chelsea do not have defenders. Azpi was just average with no record at his national team. Rudiger is just a player without skills and good ball control. Christensien refused to grow into the position despite his early potentials.zouma seized to be the rock since that injury earlier in his carrier at Chelsea and has been copying rudiger who is not even good enough.
