Lampard: Chelsea needed to spend big to replace Hazard

Timo Werner Scores First Premier League Goals But Southampton Come from Behind To Draw With Chelsea


Thiago Silva and keeper Edouard Mendy will not be involved in Chelsea's game against Southampton but Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech are in the squad.

Meanwhile, Malian winger Djenepo, who scored his first league goal in over a year in Southampton's 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion last time out, picked up a hamstring injury in the same match.

And Lampard think the club was exactly what the club needed to increase their chances of landing higher this season after losing a player of Hazard's caliber.

"When we look at it like this, we have no chance against a lot of teams in the Premier League, but the good thing is it's not the best single players winning games, it's the best teams winning games". "We couldn't do any business so the work we did was on the pitch previous year".

"Teams trying to be in and around the top 6 and above spent a year ago, they spent this summer again". He's got over some of the feelings with the injury he has had for a while that took him out of England squad, so he's available for tomorrow.

"We don't expect the best game from us at the moment, but they are also struggling with a lot of players going on global travels, so the team that finds quicker in the game and better in the game has a big chance to win it". Have their squads built for a long time. "We missed two windows and now we come back in and we've brought players in with a view to improve us".

The England Under-21 worldwide attracted interest from Leeds after proving to be one of the few bright spots in Norwich's unsuccessful top-flight campaign last season.

"But we should have no problem with expectations". Why would you want to run or play for Chelsea without any pressure on yourself to be successful or with expectations related to it? We have to put them aside, work hard and try to live up to them.

Chelsea signed Ziyech from Ajax back in February, but due to a knee injury he has been unable to make an appearance in the Premier League so far.
