Thiago Silva Thrives In CFC’s Defence Because He Concentrates – Lampard


Frank LampardChelsea coach, Frank Lampard has come out to say that he has complete faith in Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

He recently revealed that both players will definitely hit their groove for Chelsea very soon.

According to him, he believes his new signings, including Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, can eventually be the ones to make the difference over the course of the season.

He added that the reason why Thiago Silva has done well for the Blues this far is because he is a defender that concentrates on the pitch.

His words, “I am very happy with Timo,”

“If you go back to the game before that, he scored two goals and Kai Havertz scores a goal. I am least worried about the front end of the pitch with the players that we have there.

“It is normal that it will take some time for relationships [to build]. For when we have got to put the ball in behind, the ball into feet, clearly these things are going to take time to build. The reason we brought Timo and Kai into the club is to add to the quality we already have here.

“Hakim Ziyech is looking like he is getting close to starting a game with his fitness. I have no worries about that. The last bit didn’t happen for us today. It is normal, that happens in football but I am very happy with the players.”

On Chelsea, “Where we have conceded more goals in certain games than we would have liked this season, it is important to address those problems,”

“You obviously address them at the back and I thought we defended the box very well today.

“Defending for me, at this level, is about concentration. Concentration is what will define defending in top players generally. What you saw in Thiago Silva today is a defender who concentrates at every moment of the game in every minute, to not just affect things for himself but affects those around him. I think that was a big plus today.

“The balance of the team is something we are constantly trying to work on. We got into some nice areas in the final third but didn’t have the usual spark that we have seen already from Timo, from Kai already or what Christian can do. That is normal.

“I will make a big positive of the fact that we defended very well today, at times we had good control, but we did not have that penetration that we normally have.”
