Lampard “not worried” about recent lack of goals

Chelsea have failed to score in their last two games in all competition after a goalless draw away to Manchester United.

Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard is not worried about the team’s lack of goals recently and believes his forwards would hit the peak of their best form soon.

"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."

Lampard admitted that his team are still working hard in finding the right balance between their offense and their defense after a change to their style of play in recent weeks.

“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.
