Kurt Zouma has shed some light on the style of football Lampard wants at Chelsea.
The French defender has come under criticism with the rest of his defensive team-mates after Chelsea conceded 3 goals yet again, this time against West Brom. Much has been made of Lampard’s inability to set up his team defensively.
The Blues have conceded 42 goals on the road since August 2019, the highest by any team in the top division. Zouma has now talked about the plan Lampard wants executed at Chelsea to resolve their defensive woes.
“He has been a player here so he knows the kind of feeling of the player, he knows how to talk to us with great advice and for myself, he gives me the confidence, just helped to get it back and I try to do my best every time he puts me in.
“He has been a legend here so he wants to defend the badge, he loves Chelsea and he wants to play attractive football too which is a bit different than before. He wants to attack a lot, press higher, which is good for us.
He added: “All the guys have been working very hard so the competition is there so anyone who deserves to play will play and we are going to do great.
“We have a great team and more players came in with great qualities and we want to reach the top.
“We have the quality for that but we know it is not going to be easy, the other teams are also good. The league is very tough, but of course we want to do better than last year and win some trophies.”
