Frank Lampard: Why I'm not worried about my strikers

Frank Lampard: Why I'm not worried about my strikers

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says he is not worried about his team's lack of goals despite having good talents upfront.  

The Blues have not scored in the last two matches; 0-0 draws against Sevilla, in the Champions League, and a similar score at Old Trafford in the Premier League last week. 

Speaking in the wake of the draw at Old Trafford, Lampard chose to concentrate on the team's performance at the back, which has, according to him, improved.  

"Where we have conceded more goals than I would have liked in certain games this season, it is important to try to address those problems," Lampard confirmed.

"Obviously we are addressing them at the back. I thought we defended the box very well [at Old Trafford]

"Defending for me at this level when you have individual players with good quality is about concentration. Concentration is what defines defending in top players generally.

"Thiago Silva on Saturday was a great example of a defender who concentrates at every moment of a game, not just to affect things himself but to affect those around him. That was a big plus,"

"I am least worried about the front end of the pitch with the players that we have there," he added.

"It is normal it will take some time for the relationships in the side to form, whether we want to play the ball in behind or to feet. We are in such an early part of the season and I know the qualities and the reasons we brought Timo and Kai into the club.

"I know the qualities we already have there and Hakim Ziyech is now looking like he is coming close to starting a game with his fitness. I am very happy with the players,"

Chelsea will next play Krasnodar in the Champions League on  Wednesday night, hoping to pick their first win of the season.
