Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been blamed for making some poor decisions during the 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Wednesday night.

Following the defeat to West Ham, Chelsea are now just two points ahead of Manchester United, who are fifth and unbeaten in 15 games.

According to Daily Star’s Callum Vurley, Lampard made three wrong decisions in the defeat to West Ham on Wednesday night.

Vurley criticised Lampard’s centre-back pairing of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger. He also revealed Olivier Giroud was better suited playing against West Ham than Tammy Abraham and also criticised Marcos Alonso’s selection.

“If Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are Chelsea’s best defenders going into the final handful of matches, they can kiss goodbye to their top four hopes,” Vurley wrote for Daily Star.

“Tammy Abraham was very clearly the wrong choice for a match like this. West Ham were happy to defend for large quantities of the game and Abraham does not possess the link-up play necessary to beat a low-block.

“He was either crowded out, heavy-footed or offside – and really Olivier Giroud should have started.

“Quite simply, any side that holds ambitions of Champions League football should not be starting Alonso in a back-four.

“He is woefully inadept at the position – he cannot run, he cannot defend and he barely possesses any actual footballing ability.”

  1. Lampard is not good enough to be Chelsea coach. Coz he used useless players like Abraham, to play much more time than others. He hate much prayers also

    First thing a manager must do to built a successful football team is a solid defence. Chelsea must go for a player like Koulibaly of Napoli and Chidwell. For the remainder of the season the back four must be James, Zouma or Timori, Rudiger and Azpilicueta. Otherwise say bye bye to fourth place.
