One key area Chelsea should strengthen after West Ham defeat

Jermaine Jenas says Chelsea needs to sign a defender after the Blues suffered a 3-2 loss to West Ham on Wednesday night. 

Jenas slammed Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Marcos Alonso's performance against West Ham. And the former Spurs ace believes Frank Lampard should consider signing new defenders in the summer. 

"Definitely," he said when asked whether Wednesday's results prove Chelsea needs to strengthen in defense. 

"You would have thought they would have learned from the first goal but they don’t and they concede."

"Christensen, I’m not sure what he’s thinking [with West Ham’s second goal]. He jumps over Michail Antonio so he knows he’s there but then he doesn’t take the care to see where he is afterward and just runs past him."

"With West Ham’s winner, Alonso is thinking about going forward, that’s why he doesn’t track back the way he should have. And then Rudiger must be the only player in the Premier League that doesn’t know Yarmolenko wants to cut back inside here."

"You have to take him down the line and give yourself a chance. He allows him to cut onto his favored foot and he scores."
