Chelsea coach Frank Lampard doesn't think his team's defense is too problematic, because from the data point of view, the Blues' limit on the number of shots by their opponents is not bad.
Chelsea conceded a total of 9 goals in the first 5 rounds of the Premier League, and only one game with zero conceded. Since Lampard took office, he has conceded 63 goals in 43 Premier League games, which is the most conceded of the previous blue coaches. However, the magic lamp believes that his team is not bad at limiting the opponent's opportunities. "Since we took over, Chelsea has made the second-less shots by opponents in the Premier League, second only to Manchester City, so sometimes, this will help you focus on the problem." Lampard said.
"The problem is that we don't have many chances for our opponents to kick shots, but when the opponents shoot, we often lose the ball. When you consider the lineup signings, this is what you need to be aware of."
According to Lampard, the focus of the problem is obviously the position of the goalkeeper. The opponents do not take many shots, indicating that the overall defense of the Blues is OK, but as long as they are shot, they may lose the ball. Kepa, Caballero and other goalkeepers are in the position. The storm is on the cusp, which is probably why the Blues bought Mendy in the summer.
Lampard also said that if you want to reduce the loss of the ball, you need time and hard training. "I have been talking about the need for time to train, new players entering the lineup, the ups and downs in the game are understandable, this needs time and training to solve."
