Frank Lampard has been told his Chelsea team are actually worse this season than they were last term, despite spending over £200million in the transfer market.
This is according to Lampard’s former West Ham teammate, Trevor Sinclair, who believes the Blues are lacking the ‘spirit’ they showed last season since their huge recruitment drive.
“I’m still up in the air with my opinions about Chelsea,” Sinclair told talkSPORT. “I’m not sure which way it is going to go.
“Frank came in at Chelsea and did really well last season, and I thought that the young players that were introduced to the squad integrated really well and put in good performances.
“But this year, since he had that money to spend in the summer… I’m just not sure which way it is going to go.
“You’ve got some quality players in there – Havertz, Werner, Ziyech and so on – but for me they looked like a better outfit last year. There was more spirit about the team.
“It’s going to take a while, I think, to blend the players together.”
