Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has said that Chelsea FC have an underlying problem under Frank Lampard which they need to solve sooner rather than later.
The Blues have been hailed for their attack-minded approach this term but they have yet to beat any of the so-called big teams in the Premier League with Lampard at the helm.
The west London giants have already played Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City in the top-flight and on each of those occasions, they have come up without a single point for their efforts.
In a report covered by Metro, Scholes said that there is definitely something missing in the current Blues squad, given they have impressed against the big boys without necessarily picking up points.
“He’s definitely missing something. He went to Manchester United, everyone said Chelsea were the best team, played really well, got beat 4-0. Played against Liverpool, played okay I don’t think they were anything great against Liverpool, got beat. They played against Manchester City, everyone’s saying the best team, they were really good, they played well, they’ve lost the game. Now he has to find a way of changing that,” he continued,” he said.
He added that the Blues won’t get anything from the defeats and Lampard needs to find a solution such that they can overcome the challenge presented by the elite Premier League sides.
Chelsea FC have a friendly schedule with games against West Ham United, Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Everton to come but they can’t get complacent with a few of those sides under pressure.
The Hammers and Toffees have performed way below their expectations this season and the duo should provide testing challenges for the Blues during the festive period.
Thereafter, they have a couple London derbies against Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal before the New Year and Lampard will be hoping that his team can turn their performances against the big sides into results by then.
