Chelsea have had a mixed start to the season under club legend Frank Lampard.

The Blues have just eight points in the Premier League from six games ahead of the visit of Brighton to Stamford Bridge.

Ahead of Saturday’s game against Brighton, BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson has revealed Chelsea’s main weakness.

According to Lawrenson, Chelsea’s main weakness is our leaky defence.

“Brighton did well in their 0-0 draw at Newcastle last time out and Chelsea hardly played badly either despite being beaten by Liverpool,” he told the BBC ahead of Chelsea’s clash with the Seagulls on Saturday.

“So much happened in that game at Stamford Bridge, it could easily have ended up 2-2.

“Chelsea do have a weakness at the back but I don’t think they have a massive issue there – it is more every lapse is being punished – and I think Frank Lampard will finally be able to celebrate his first home league win as Blues boss on Saturday.

“Brighton will try to play rather than park the bus and they deserve plaudits for that, but it will help Chelsea – just like it helped Manchester City last month.”
