Chelsea threw away two factors towards Southampton this afternoon – and this stat received’t make supervisor Frank Lampard really feel any higher.
The Blues had been in management for giant durations towards the Saints, being each 2-Zero and 3-2 up through the contest, however a 92nd minute equaliser noticed them throw away two factors at Stamford Bridge.
Two of the targets specifically got here immediately from errors by Chelsea gamers – Kai Havertz and, in fact, Kepa Arrizabalaga, who because the Premier League present on their web site, has made three errors main on to a purpose thus far within the league this season.
No different participant has made multiple.
In truth, 5 of Chelsea’s 9 conceded targets within the league this time period have come from particular person errors, with Thiago Silva making up the fifth (towards West Brom in one other 3-Three draw).
That’s fairly extraordinary to assume. The majority of Chelsea’s issues on the again have come from particular person errors, fairly than a flaw in Lampard’s system or an incapability to educate defending.
That should be massively irritating for Lampard, that it’s not his sport plan which is coming undone, fairly foolish particular person errors from his crew (and goalkeeper) are costing him factors week in, week out.
And who is aware of, it might finally value him his job.
