Fulham have improved and Lampard should be worried

Chelsea have been struggling recently in the Premier League and it seems Arsenal passed the poor form disease to the Blues after beating them at the Emirates in the league some weeks back. The Blues have seen themselves drop down the table and something has to be done immediately before the struggles get out of hand. It's no more news that they beat Morecambe 4 nil in the FA Cup but this result can't be used to judge if the Blues have weathered the storm or not. Regardless, Frank Lampard and his men should know that they'll have a game in their hands when they travel to face newly-promoted neighbors Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Lampard defends duo and compares them to Hazard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has come to the defense of under-fire duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz after they scored against Morecambe in the FA Cup on Sunday and compared them to Eden Hazard. Werner and Havertz have struggled recently but played their parts in the FA Cup 4 nil victory on Sunday.  The German striker's goal was his first goal in 13 games in all competitions while Havertz has not been top-notch since he suffered from coronavirus at the early stages of the season. Lampard has been under pressure recently due to the poor form of both players but jumped to their defense after they booked their place in Monday's fourth-round draw. The Englishman made reference to Eden Hazard's time at Chelsea, stating that the Belgian took some time before fully settling in at Stamford...

Gunners thrashing highlights Blues’ recent poor away form

December has been a frustrating month for Frank Lampard and Chelsea in the Premier League, and more so with the 3:1 loss to an out-of-sorts Arsenal team on boxing day. The Blues have been inconsistent away from home and have now lost 3 in a row to Everton, Wolves, and Mikel Arteta's Arsenal. Arsenal had been struggling for weeks in the Premier League but still took the Blues to the cleaners even with an unfamiliar line-up. It was a game where their London rivals were supposed favorites for all three points. The Blues who have been impressive since Edouard Mendy replaced Kepa Arrizabalaga are now struggling for goals, and have been very poor on the road.

West ham eye January move for Olivier Giroud

Olivier Giroud has been very impressive for Chelsea this term and I bet that no one thought he would be this influential in the side after the acquisitions that were made by the Blues this summer. The veteran forward is attracting interest from neighbors West Ham and they will try to sign him in January according to reports.  The Hammers have been decent thus far this season under David Moyes, although their striking department has left more to be desired. Haller has been struggling since he made the move from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019. The forward has failed to live up to expectation with Michail Antonio currently on the sidelines. Haller has scored just 2 goals in 11 games. According to the Mirror, the Hammers have identified Chelsea as where they will go for striking reinf...

Lampard expects low points tally for Premier League winners

Frank Lampard expects this season's Premier League title to be won with significantly lower points than in recent seasons. The last three seasons have seen Manchester City and Liverpool emerge as champions with 100, 88, and 99 points respectively while Chelsea got 93 points in the 2016/17 campaign. The 2020/21 season's battle is beginning to take shape and is very close with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool leading the rest of the pack with 25 points in 12 games, although it's a narrow gap between them and the likes of Leicester, Southampton, and Chelsea. Lampard said: "I think that's just where we're at this season. We felt it first hand at the weekend with Everton. They've got good players, they invested in the summer, they're a good squad, they were well organized and they made ...

Lampard warns his stars against COVID-19 and Christmas parties

Frank Lampard has warned his Chelsea players to embrace their responsibilities as role models and avoid breaching any social distancing rules during Christmas. The Chelsea legend admitted that he will remind his players to adhere to Government guidelines on the management of COVID-19 as the Premier League approaches the festive season. It can be recalled that Tammy Abraham and Ben Chilwell broke coronavirus restrictions at the striker's birthday party in October, thus missing international action and subsequently tendering an apology for their conduct. Regardless, Lampard admitted that the rowdy parties during Christmas are a thing of the past in the Premier League and will speak to his players about their conduct.

Edouard Mendy has come to stay, time up for Kepa

We can now say that Chelsea have a decent goalkeeper between the sticks and credit must be given to the folks that recommended the new towering shot-stopper to the Blues. Edouard Mendy has come to stay and I can confidently say Kepa Arizabalaga's time at Chelsea is officially up. It's shameful to say for a goalie that was a record signing for his position and also at Chelsea. The season started on a high for the Blues with a 3:1 win away to Brighton at the Amex. However, the Spaniard began from where he left off last season with inconsistencies and indecisions which cost the Blues last season and were sure to cost the Blues this season if they weren't addressed. Kepa Arrizabalaga played three games for the Blues in the Premier League before the unveiling of Edouard Mendy. RE...

Lampard seems to have handed Barkley a lifeline at Chelsea

According to reports, Ross Barkley has been handed a lifeline by Frank Lampard and could yet have a future at Chelsea.  The midfielder has been in impressive form for Aston Villa since making the loan move from Stamford Bridge, scoring twice in 5 Premier League starts for Dean Smith's Villans who currently sit sixth in the table. Barkley joined Aston Villa on loan in the summer transfer window as Lampard couldn't guarantee him first-team football this season especially after the summer signing of Kai Havertz from Bayern Leverkusen. This meant that the English midfielder had fallen down the pecking order at the club. However, his performances at Villa has reportedly impressed Lampard. According to Eurosport, the Chelsea manager recently reached out to Barkley to congratulate him fo...

Lampard says new signing will only get better

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed his delight with Timo Werner's start to life at Stamford Bridge and has tipped the German to improve. Werner has been settling well since he made the move from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig in the summer in a big-money deal. The 24-year-old has scored 4 goals and provided 1 assist for the Blues in the Premier League but has 8 goals in all competitions this season. The forward will now be looking to impress further and establish himself as one of the best players at the club in recent times as the season progresses, and maybe, even help Chelsea mount a challenge for the Premier League title this term. His performances thus far have impressed his English manager and Frank Lampard disclosed this during an interview with Chelsea FC's website. ...

Mason Mount hails Hakim Ziyech as world class

Mason Mount has hailed team-mate Hakim Ziyech and described him as world-class after his spectacular performances last week. The 27-year-old joined Chelsea from Ajax for a fee of £37 million but had to wait to fully recover from a knee injury before making his debut for the Blues. On his return to action, he has scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist. His back to back performances in recent games in the UCL and Premier League has made Mount lavish praises on him. 'We know what he can do on the ball and what he brings to the team,' he said. 'He's a world-class player, obviously coming in and scoring the other night [against Krasnodar] and scoring on his Premier League debut. He's a brilliant player. He's a joy to play with, very clever on the ball, he brings a lot to the team. He'...
