Chelsea need a killer strikers, says Lampard
Frank Lampard thinks Chelsea do not have enough ruthless strikers in front of the gate. Despite the impressive 3-0 win over Morecambe in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
Lampard used that match as an exercise in building the team’s confidence. By choosing a strong starting lineup against the club from League Two – the fourth level of English football.
Timo Werner scored after a full 13 games and Kai Havertz ended a 15-match run without a goal.
The German duo, who cost the club a lot in the summer, went through this extremely negative performance during a time when the club experienced poor form winning only one of the last six games in the league.
Coach Lampard said after the match that the problem of his team is the lack of killer instinct.
“What we can not ask from the youngsters of this team sometimes is to be absolutely consistent and to be killers. Like other players in the league.” said Lampard.
“They will show this in time, but our boys are making a good contribution at the moment.”
“They must be murderers in the best way and I hope people understand what I mean. Our players are young with a lot of potential.” he added.
