Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has labelled Frank Lampard’s Chelsea team a mess following the 4-1 defeat at Bayern Munich on Saturday.

“I don’t know who is coaching the players at Chelsea – they’re a mess!” Cascarino told talkSPORT. “Defensively, they are a total mess.

“Watching them last night, they give up space all the time which is one of the worst things you can do, because people expose you and exploit what you give them, especially a team like Bayern.

“They have got quality, they have world-class players in their team and have got some of the best youngsters around – there are a lot of strings to Frank Lampard’s bow.

“But if he doesn’t get this defensive side right and make Chelsea much tougher to beat, they are not going to do anything. In the Champions League, they’re going to become just another group stage team, no more.”
