Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is disappointed with the role of Chelsea’s goalkeepers in the club’s poor defensive record following another below par showing against Southampton on Saturday.
Chelsea were held to a 3-3 draw by the Saints at the Stamford Bridge missing out on the chance to move ahead of champions Liverpool on the table.
Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga attracted much of the criticism once again after another error strewn performance.
“In terms of the goals conceded, yes I am aware of the stats and the other stat is that since I’ve been here we’ve conceded the second least shots in the Premier League, I think behind Manchester City,” Lampard said.

“So it helps you to sometimes maybe narrow down some of the issues and the issues are that we don’t concede many shots on our goal but when we do, we concede goals.
“I think it is something we were all aware of when you look at recruitment. And more importantly that you are aware of it when you work every day on the pitch with the players to make sure when we are set up well.
“We don’t create many chances but the chances we do concede we let in too much.
“That is something we work on specifically. Of course, we want to concede less goals as all teams do at the moment. There are a lot of teams conceding a lot of goals in the Premier League at the moment and we are all in a similar position to a degree.
“It’ll always be something we work on as much as our attacking play.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
