According to Manchester United legend Phil Neville, Frank Lampard’s biggest weakness at Chelsea is a lack of creativity in the midfield.

“Mason Mount is a really good player but probably he isn’t the type of creative player that makes the final pass,” Neville told Premier League Productions.

“Mateo Kovacic for me flatters to deceive sometimes. He’s good on the eye but does he play [that pass]?

“I think it’s the one area where you say can they get Christian Pulisic more central? That’s the one I’d be thinking about.

“If they’re going to win leagues you need some player that is going to be really special and that’s what Eden Hazard was for them.

“Cesc Fabregas was for them too and I don’t think they’ve replaced Fabregas since he left. I think a no10 is a position – Manchester United have gone out and bought Bruno Fernandes – it’s a position where you need to buy the best.”
