Eden Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid during the summer transfer window after helping the Blues win the Europa League title in May.
Hazard was undoubtedly the star of the Chelsea team and everything the Chelsea team did revolved around the Belgian as he seemed to be at a higher level than his teammates and was always the player to make things happen.
Many predicted that Chelsea will collapse following the sale of Hazard especially with the Blues unable to make any signing to replace him. Fast forward to the new season, and Chelsea are a team on fire.
Former Blue Tony Cascarino has hailed the work going on at Chelsea and believes that Lampard is doing a great job without key players.
“You can have one player who is so good for you that you’re so reliant on him and you keep giving him the ball,” Cascarino told talkSPORT, referring to Eden Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid.
“Now you can give it to Mason Mount, he might create something for Tammy Abraham, Jorginho is getting on the ball far more.
“Let’s remember who’s not playing for Chelsea at the moment: N’Golo Kante, their best defender Antonio Rudiger.
“So you have to turn back and think there’s a lot that he [Lampard] is getting right and the team is reacting to a lot of big players that aren’t at the club or not playing.”
