Lampard has warned the forwards from Chelsea to forget about Eden Hazard and
take the opportunity to take on better goal-scoring responsibility.
Hazard has enjoyed a great season under Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge last
term before he sealed his dream to make a move to Real Madrid following the 7
trophy-laden years that he spent in west London. As
the club is not being able to pay for new players in the transfer window, the
task of Lampard to replace the primary source of assists and goals for Chelsea
has become quite impossible, especially because of the injury that had caused
Callum Hudson-Odoi to back out from the new campaign.
Lampard searches for his first win in the Premier League in charge prior to the visit to Norwich as Chelsea had been defeated by Old Trafford by 4-0 before being held in a draw of 1-1 against Leicester only last weekend. Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham are still to get off the mark in this league but Frank Lampard has insisted that it isn’t the job of one player to fill up the void which had been made by the departure of Hazard. He has said that they will have to find them in the group because of he knows how many of the goals Hazard has been a part of when it comes to assisting and scoring.
Lampard goes on to say that the facts are real and they need to address them along with work. The challenge is pretty clear for the attacking players, as well as the strikers and that, is whether they can be players to score the goals. The top teams of the league have players who can score on a regular basis which helps in winning the games which are otherwise difficult.
Chelsea is set up to make a shocking move for the star of Barcelona Philippe Coutinho this late spring if they can topple an exchange boycott set on the club. The Sadness is as of now engaging a two window exchange restriction from FIFA that would keep the club from marking players until the year 2020.
Chelsea can even now sell players and Real Madrid is relied upon to affirm the catch of Eden Hazard right on time one week from now after he affirmed he would leave Stamford Bridge. The club is justifiably quick to supplant the Belgian and the report of Mirror that Coutinho has been distinguished as the perfect substitution.

Maurizio Sarri has revealed that Gonzalo Higuain is finding it tough to adapt to the Premiership’s brand of Football which involves a greater degree of physicality in comparison to the other leagues in Europe.
Higuain has spent last 6 years of his career playing in Italy where it’s not like England, especially in terms of how defenders go about their business.

Chelsea was on their way on to becoming a stable and calm football club after the row between club management and Antonio Conte and they were transitioning smoothly until the EFL cup final against Manchester City. Even though Maurizio Sarri, the current manager and successor of Antonio Conte was facing severe criticism over the continuous series of failures in performances and the overall distortion in the team spirit, fans were hopeful that a change might be on its way. But in the extra time of the Carabao cup final, the football world witnessed a row which silently confirmed that all is not going well in the dressing room and effectively, inside the club.
Manchester City and Chelsea where battling tooth and nail for a final victory but no one seemed to be able to break the stalemate and thus, the match got into extra time. It was during the end of this period that the clash started to unravel when Maurizio Sarri decided to make a change seeing that the game was going to penalties. The then-playing goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was instructed to come off to be replaced by the second choice Argentinian goalkeeper Willy Caballero. Since Willy Caballero had a more save rate in terms of penalties, it seemed like a sensible decision but Maurizio Sarri was left furious when Kepa refused to come off and maintained his position.
