Chelsea boss Frank Lampard seems to be getting his squad in good shape ahead of the new season.
Chelsea have won 4 of their 6 pre-season games so far, and the last 3 games have ended in wins for Chelsea, including a massive victory against Barcelona.
Lampard’s men have now netted 15 goals in their last four games and the team is looking sharp in attack. But defence has been a big issue, as the Blues have conceded 6 goals in the last 4 games.
Chelsea’s attack was too hot for Austrian side RB Salzburg as the Blues scored 5 goals, but the Blues were poor in defence and conceded 3 goals in that game.
Chelsea defender David Luiz was to blame for at least one of the goals that Chelsea conceded against Salzburg, as his defending for the first goal was poor.
A number of Chelsea fans bashed Luiz on social media after his error.
A Chelsea fan wrote: “Luiz it’s time to go.
“What the hell is wrong with David Luiz,” one fan said.
“I don’t care how many through passes or no-look scorpions he completes, David Luiz is the worst defender at Chelsea Football Club. Period,” one angry fan wrote on social media after the game.
“Further proof David Luiz has no business being on this team anymore!!!” another fan wrote.
Speaking after the game, Lampard revealed that he was impressed with the team’s performance in attack, but admitted that they need to work on the defence.
Lampard said after the game: “Some really good play from us, some good goals, good combinations.
“Great attacking of the line from front men and wingers, which is a huge thing for me, and obviously conceding some goals with some sloppy moments from us.
“Big positives in the way we played, this was a tough match for us against a team that is in-season and play with a high press.
“They tested us on the ball, we succeed at times and not at other times but I am pleased generally. Conceding in pre-season is something you don’t want to do but it is not the worst as it gives you things to address before the business starts.”
