Chelsea is looking like an adventurous outfit again in 2020-21, Craig Burley has said.
Craig recently said Thiago Silva is going to need an oxygen mask after joining a team as talented as the London club.
According to him, with all the chaos going on at Stamford Bridge, the Brazilian will definitely provide the needed calm amid the chaos.
He added that it will even be very difficult for Frank Lampard to select his first eleven next season.
His words, “Thiago Silva is going to need an oxygen mask because there is only N’Golo Kante in there who has got any defensive qualities,”
“That’s going to be the difficulty for Lampard, striking the balance.
“Mason Mount, who really flourished in his first season in the Premier League, is an attacking player, Kai Havertz played a lot of the season at Leverkusen as a striker, and then you add the front three [Werner, Ziyech and Christian Pulisic] in and it’s ‘over to you N’Golo Kante’ because nobody else is going to be defending!
“Striking a balance with [Mateo] Kovacic or somebody else in there is going to be key.
“Chelsea had one of their worst seasons defensively last year, they lost a heck of a lot of goals, so Lampard knows that he needs to make sure he solidifies his back line, which was a big problem for them.
“Chelsea are going to be great to watch, you just don’t know which way!”
