Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Southampton at Stamford Bridge, Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has sent a warning to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
According to Hasenhuttl, the volume of money spent by the Blues this summer means Lampard has to deliver visible improvement on the field.
Hasenhuttl said: “If they are not better than last season then that’s a lot of money for nothing, so they have to be better.
“They have so much quality now with Kai Havertz and others. They are a team who are prepared to win title and trophies so it will be more difficult than last season, maybe.
“The level is high and we have to reach their level otherwise it will be difficult to get something.”
