Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has said he needs new signings after seeing his team lose away at Newcastle United over the weekend.
The London club won six Premier League games in a row ahead of the November international break but they have failed to win consecutive league games for about 2 months now.
Speaking recently, the Chelsea legend hinted at needing an attacking player in January to improve his team in the new year.
He added that his boys have to be more clinical.
His words, “In attacking areas [is where we would look to strengthen], because we need to be more clinical,”
“I wouldn’t say [we need] a goalscorer but we need to be more clinical in the box in terms of our front line.
“When we attack and spend a lot of time around the opposition’s box, we have chipped in with some goals from midfield and have people who can arrive from midfield, but the broader reality is that we need more goals from the front line.”
On Tammy Abraham, “It doesn’t matter what his age, Harry Kane has afternoons, [Kylian] Mbappe, so does [Lionel] Messi,”
“I think the one thing I would expect always is desire and trying in everything that he does and I think he always does that, to be fair.
“It was just a difficult afternoon. And again Newcastle absolutely get numbers in their box to defend, so to expect him to get loads of space is not right. To hope that he gives everything to try to get space, which is what he did it just didn’t quite come off, I’d say.”
“They will be hurt and disappointed. In terms of learning, we have all felt these games before, whether it’s academy football, first-team football, Championship football, it happens,”
“I don’t think there is a naive nature or a young nature to it. I just think it’s football and the practical nature. We don’t finish chances and you leave a team in the game and you can lose the game. They are disappointed, not just the young players but everyone.
“I think they gave everything and I don’t think I can complain about that too much at all. They pushed and pushed but sometimes football just does that to you.”
