Following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has urged Chelsea fans not to panic.

Cole expects Chelsea to come good and believes Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and the players need time.

Cole was happy with Chelsea’s start against Leicester City but wants the Blues to start converting their chances.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Cole said: “Chelsea’s start was very good. From minute one, they had their game plan to press, to make runs in behind and it worked. Then after that, it was a little bit disappointing.

“We spoke a lot about where the goals are going to come so when you take a 1-0 lead, you need to try and get another one because you don’t feel like you’re going to get enough chances.

“In this game, they had enough chances but they didn’t finish them. That would be the main concern for Frank – are they going to be good enough to take their chances and score more than one per game?

“Chelsea have got the players and everyone expects them to be in the top four or six, but the Premier League has changed. The manager needs time, the players need time and I don’t think everyone should panic yet.”
