Michael Essien backs Frank Lampard to deliver at Chelsea

Chelsea have not found the balance between attack and defence


Michael Essien has backed Frank Lampard to get the right formulae at Chelsea soon. The former Blues midfielder was talking to Goal when he spoke about how his former teammate needs time to get things together.

He said:

“He [Lampard] is Chelsea, he knows the club inside out and what needs to be done. He will get the help of everyone there and I think so far that he has done a good job. Last season was a good achievement and it isn’t an easy place to manage. The fans can demand a lot so it isn’t easy, and he is doing his best. Football is full of ups and downs, you have to understand that. Get behind the team instead of not being happy after every bad result.”

“The job is not easy so you have to be patient and push the team, then hopefully they will do well. They have added good players so they will have to deliver as a lot is expected now. The young players are doing well but I don’t know if they could play in my old team! I am joking because I like the young players, with the likes of Mason Mount, but you need to raise your game at Chelsea constantly.”

Chelsea were leaking goals last season but have been solid in the last two matches. They have not found the balance just yet as their attack his not done anything significant in the matches.
