Chelsea To Start Looking For A Van Dijk-Like Figure For Next Transfer Target

Chelsea To Start Looking For A Van Dijk-Like Figure For Next Transfer Target
Bildbyran

Frank Lampard admits that Chelsea is in dire need of a Van Dijk-like figure to improve at set-pieces.

He noted that when Liverpool signed defender Virgil van Dijk, there was a direct rise in improvement in set-plays. That, in turn, reflected on Chelsea’s most underrated weakness – dead ball situations.

“We’ve looked at set-plays this season. When we came into the club, we looked at the stats from last season and we were bottom of the league in defending set-plays, in terms of other teams getting big chances against us, we were second-bottom in attacking,” said Lampard before Saturday’s PL fixture with Watford.

“If you look at personnel, and I don’t like to talk about my playing days, but we didn’t really work so much on set-pieces at all really – with certain managers more than others. There were probably a few reasons why and they were mainly John Terry, Gary Cahill, Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack and [Branislav] Ivanovic, so you stick it in an area and they defend it or they score goals.

“I think similarly with Liverpool, there was a lot of talk about them with set-pieces two or three seasons ago, they were zonal, they were conceding a lot.

“They signed Virgil van Dijk and he heads everything that comes in the box out, so there’s a huge relation to personnel and if you don’t have that in terms of big size across the team, I think trying to compete as hard as you can, making it difficult for other teams to score is the main thing.

Lampard realised that Chelsea also might need to look for someone like Virgil van Dijk.

“And there’s no doubt – I’m not making excuses when I say that because we’ve not done this well enough on the pitch, and that has to improve – when you look at who you might bring in, with the balance of the squad, in the modern day its certainly something to take into account when looking at recruitment.”

Lampard Wants Chelsea To Sign Long-Term Contract With Willian

Lampard Wants Chelsea To Sign Long-Term Contract With Willian
Bildbyran

Frank Lampard believes that Chelsea winger Willian hands down deserves a new contract with the Blues.

The club is in discussion with Willian about reaching an agreement over a new contract, according to Lampard. The fact that Willian is over 30 proves how valuable a player he is to Chelsea, seeing as that most footballers over 30 aren’t given new contracts.

“I haven’t given up hope on it, the club are still in discussions with him,” said Lampard.

“We want him to stay at the club but I also appreciate the fact this contract for Willian is a big deal because of his age and where he’s at, I’ve been there before myself and I respect that.

“But the way he’s playing at the minute I think shows his worth to the squad and the group. It’s something I hope we can get to.

“Whatever way [it goes] with Willian, he’s been a great servant to the club and if we can get it I’ll be happy, if not I’ll wish him well because I’ve got a lot of time for him as a player and in the short term we can see what he’s doing for us. It’s ongoing is the short answer.”

Gilmour: It was like training with the stars

Gilmour: It was like training with the stars
Bildbyran

Billy Gilmour has revealed what it was like to enter the Chelsea first-team training the first time around. 

It was back under Maurizio Sarri that Gilmour was allowed a few times to train with the first team players and the young Scottish midfielder was in awe of playing with the likes of Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas. 

“Cesc Fabregas was still there when I did two or three sessions with the first team and that was amazing because all the time growing up I had watched him, Andres Iniesta and Xavi.

“The first time I was a bit star-struck, thinking: ‘this is Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard.’ It was a bit surreal. It was amazing to even train with those sort of players, top professionals.

“You just sort of go over, say good morning, shake their hand and then after the session, I’d phone my dad… ‘I was training with Cesc Fabregas and Hazard!’ It was like being a kid again!”

Fabregas is a personal idol of Gilmour and it must have been a moment of great excitement for Gilmour back then. The young player has a cool head on his shoulder, much like Cesc and has very quickly realised which part of his game he needs to master on. 

“I’m not going to grow much more and being small, and not the biggest, it means I have to be technically really good, especially knowing where I am on the pitch and not getting into physical battles,” he added.

Chelsea Predicted Line Up vs Watford

Chelsea players vs Watford will be tricky to tell. Lampard has shown that he has trust in youngsters but he still does not have a set of players that he favours. Injuries, loss in form and consistency always work against a player’s chances of getting picked. The Blues boss is ready to mix up the squad and hence Chelsea predicted line up cannot be easily guessed.

Predicted Starting XI for Chelsea today vs Watford

Looking for the predicted starting XI for Chelsea today vs Watford? Here is the expected starting XI for Chelsea today vs Watford:

Chelsea Predicted Line Up – Defence

In goal, we can expect Kepa to continue. In the back four, Cesar Azpilicueta should be starting again on the right while Emerson replaces Marcos Alonso on the left. Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger should pair up in the middle since Tomori is injured and Christensen was poor against West Ham.

Chelsea Predicted Line Up – Midfield

A three-man midfield with Mason Mount, Jorginho and N’Golo Kante should start since Matteo Kovacic picked up an injury. Ruben Loftus-Cheek can also start on the flanks upfront while Pedro is kept on the bench.

Chelsea Predicted Line Up – Attack

Olivier Giroud is in contention to start over Tammy Abraham since the latter started disappointed against the Hammers. Lampard is starting to trust Giroud more in league games. Christian Pulisic is also likely to start on the left flank with Willian on the right. Callum Hudson-Odoi can get a look in from the bench.

Reasons For Chelsea vs Watford Betting Tips and Our Predictions

The Chelsea squad are favourites to win this match 1.40 with bet365, with the Hornets priced at 8.75 with Unibet to possibly collect all three points at the Bridge.

Given their performances this season, it’s not hard to see why the Hornets are the price they are. Nigel Pierson is the third person to manage them this season and has only managed to get them to out of the bottom spot. They still have a difficult road ahead in maintaining their Premier League status and will find it hard at 8.75 with Unibet.

Chelsea were once again stumped by West Ham United this week after they hit a four-game winning run. It clearly showed how lower table sides can still easily break that vulnerable defence line.  1.44 with Unibet

Speaking of quality, this will be an opportunity for Tammy Abraham to back to his scoring form. He has racked up 13 goals in 28 Premier League games this season and has been handed odds of 4.25 with bet365 to score the first goal.

Ashley Cole Believes Werner Will Elevate Abraham’s Game At Chelsea

Ashley Cole Believes Werner Will Elevate Abraham's Game At Chelsea

Ashley Cole has countered talks of Timo Werner signing ruining Tammy Abraham’s development.

The former Chelsea defender believes it will actually be beneficial to Abraham that there is another person challenging to his spot.

Before Werner’s arrival, Abraham was practically unchallenged as Chelsea’s starting forward. Olivier Giroud is 33 now while Michy Batshuayi was ridiculously poor when given the chance to prove himself. Now, Frank Lampard has two great attacking outlets in Abraham and Werner, both with different strengths.

It will be interesting to see how the Blues boss integrates both into the side but many predict that Tammy’s position is in danger. Cole believes otherwise. When asked if the German forward will push Abraham towards his best, Cole replied, “I hope so.

“To have competition is healthy and they [Chelsea FC] won’t be so reliant on Tammy and [Olivier] Giroud now. I’ve never been in that position but when you get top players in, you learn from them. That’s important. He will develop and get better and have a little more hunger to play. I don’t think it will harm him. Hopefully, it will make him a better player.”

Competitions breed success and that holds true for the majority of the cases. But Abraham missing games could work against him. At 23, he is still developing his craft while Werner will be flying it with elite finishing abilities already under his belt.

Chelsea In Talks With Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s Agent

Chelsea In Talks With Sergej Milinkovic-Savic's Agent

Chelsea have contacted the representatives of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic over a potential summer move.

Frank Lampard had shortlisted the Lazio midfielder since he first arrived at Chelsea but he needed to make other squad improvements first.

Following the arrivals of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, the Blues are not stopping in the transfer market with deals likely underway for Kai Havertz, Milinkovic-Savic and a number of other prominent names. However, is this Serbian maestro really a necessary signing?

Chelsea have an overflowing midfield with the likes of Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mason Mount, Matteo Kovacic and Billy Gilmour. The only way Milinkovic-Savic will fit into that lineup if one player was to leave. There have been talks of Maurizio Sarri sweeping up Jorginho once again in the player’s career but Juventus have just signed Arthur Melo.

Lampard’s has already set his intentions from the very first day he took over at Chelsea – turn them into title-challengers again. He realizes that the current squad simply won’t do against the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City. That means, adding more talents such as Milinkovic-Savic who could secure a midfield for years at end.

Manchester United wanted him previously but could not cough up his £100m asking price then. With the worldwide pandemic affecting several clubs, Milinkovic-Savic’s price should have dropped significantly. Chelsea also have a former connection with his agent, Mateja Kezman who represented the London side years ago.

Chelsea identify Kepa replacement with Madrid goalkeeper!

Chelse identify Kepa replacement with Madrid goalkeeper!
Bildbyran

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid back up goalkeeper Alphonso Areola.

Chelsea’s number one Kepa Arrizabalaga has been on a horrendous form for the last 12 months. It was exacted in the match against West Ham United where Kepa conceded 3 goals from 3 shots on target and this was not even his worst night on the pitch. 

Kepa has been extremely substandard and it has been on the transfer rumor mill that Lampard is looking for a replacement. There were talks of Chelsea signing the likes of Andre Onana and Gianaluigi Donnarumma. 

However, a new addition to the list has been the name of Alphonse Areola

The PSG star is currently on loan at Real Madrid but has been firmly kept as a back up goalkeeper to former Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois who is the current number one at Madrid. 

Areola has no place back in Paris either who will be looking to sell him to make room for their FFP adjustments. Moreover, the goalkeeper will get to start at Chelsea, so he might be interested in a move. 

The French World Cup winner has been back up for far too long and at the age of 27, he might want to start making some adjustments to his playing career – Chelsea can be a good start.
