Chelsea are yet to get their first win of the season under Frank Lampard as the Blues lost their opening league game 4-0 against Manchester United and then played out a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Chelsea started the game against the Foxes in exciting fashion and opened up Brendan Rodgers side time after time with different waves of attacks, but it wasn’t to be at the end, as the Blues lost steam and Leicester City took over the game.

At the end, it could even be said that Chelsea were lucky to have gotten a point in that game, and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was disappointed with Chelsea’s lack of organisation in the game.

Carragher has called out captain Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho and Willian for their poor displays on Sunday.

“I don’t think they have to take it to the letter of exactly of what the manager says. Use your brain. Just drop in,” Carragher said on Sky Sports when speaking about Chelsea’s vulnerability on the counter-attack.

“It’s the way top managers want to play, it’s not the wrong approach. People talk about them about being naive and getting caught on the counter-attack.

“They’re got no organisation in possession. Frank wants his full-backs to go forward.

“Azpilicueta [should be] experienced to know he doesn’t need to go all the time. They’re leaving spaces because they’re not organised in attack.

“Experienced players like Jorginho goes flying out, doesn’t make the challenge and then there’s massive holes in the middle of the pitch.

Willian came on in the second-half but had a very poor game, leaving Carragher and Gary Neville unimpressed with his performance.

Carragher said: “Willian, who I absolutely love, if Frank could have had another substitute he would have taken him off, he was that bad,” Carragher said.

“They can’t sustain an attack, keep the ball and they’re so open.”

Neville added: “Willian should know that [to tuck in], he’s an experienced player. He’s tucked in for previous managers, the last four years at Chelsea. Why not do it for Frank?”
