Jason McAteer has praised Frank Lampard for resolving three major issues at Stamford Bridge.
The Chelsea boss is thriving with the young Blues team at Stamford Bridge. However, when Frank took over as boss, there were definite concerns about his ability to guide such an incomplete and young squad.
“I remember speaking to Frank when Chelsea and Liverpool played the Super Cup in Istanbul and you could hear his concerns.
“Where were the goals going to come from? Could Mason Mount do for Chelsea what he had done for Derby? Would he miss Antonio Rudiger?
“But he and his players have answered all those questions and more.”
I’m a big fan of Frank and think Chelsea can continue to improve but they aren’t title contenders this season” he added.
“Teams such as Chelsea and Leicester could easily go on a run of back-to-back losses, or picking up just a couple of draws in three matches, and that can lose you serious ground given the high standard set by Liverpool and City.”
