Chelsea produced a masterclass to beat Tottenham at the Tottenham Stadium on Sunday evening.

Before the game, Manchester United legend Gary Neville had sent a warning to Blues boss Frank Lampard about signing players in the January transfer window.

Chelsea have been linked with a number of players with the transfer ban having been lifted, but Neville believes it could have a negative effect on the team.

“I’m sure he’s happy to get the transfer ban lifted but it would have been more simple to just have the players he has for this season and to work with them and believe in them,” the Manchester United legend told Sky Sports.

“If you bring two or three players in, you do end up trying to make changes quicker than you usually would.

“Sometimes you sign players and think they automatically deserve to go into the team and then a younger player gets left out and don’t get the development.

“It’s good for Chelsea that they’ve got the transfer ban lifted because they need a few players but there is a potential downside to it that could cause Frank a problem.”
