Jamie Carragher highlights what problem exactly Lampard is facing at Chelsea.
“I said at the start of the season, I felt if Chelsea finished in the top four and got Champions League Frank Lampard would have done a brilliant job,” he told Sky Sports prior to Chelsea’s Premier League game against Manchester United.
“And they’re fourth in the table now.
“Even listening to Frank’s comments before the game, he’s still slightly disappointed in that he feels they should be away from the rest of the sides in that fourth position.
“They’ve been inconsistent very up and down, certainly in the last 12 or 13 games.
“They just sign a winger from Ajax for next season, there’s talk about them speaking to Jadon Sancho and even another striker. And yes, I think they do need all that.
“But the biggest problem for me, from day one for Chelsea and this Frank Lampard Chelsea team is defensively.
“They’re not good enough defensively. And this is a player that played in some of the strongest defensive teams under Jose Mourinho.
“Clean sheets is really poor, five in the Premier League. They’ve actually got seven clean sheets in 36 games this season in all competitions, nowhere near good enough.”
