Chelsea: Fans agree with Lampard that leaky defence must be improved to achieve success

Chelsea: Fans agree with Lampard that leaky defence must be improved to achieve success - Chelsea

The four goals Chelsea bagged against Southampton proved how deadly they can be despite the squad’s inexperience. Indeed, travelling fans celebrated four different goal scorers, but they were denied a clean sheet on 30 minutes when Danny Ings scored to make it 2-1.

The Blues have conceded 14 goals in their first eight games and, aside from their 4-0 drubbing at Old Trafford, their defending has cost them points against Liverpool, Sheffield United and Leicester already this season. To cement a top four stop come the end of the season, Frank Lampard will surely need to fix his leaky defence and improve his team’s game management.

The manager acknowledged the issue in his post-match comments, saying: “The defensive lapse that led to the Southampton goal shows the team is not the finished article yet. Those are the percentages that can be improved.” The club’s official Twitter account posted the quotes and fans agreed they need to sure up at the back, and showed they have faith in Lampard to carry out the improvements.
