Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has issued a rallying cry out to his attackers and has asked them to start improving their game and better their performances in the next fixtures ahead of their trip to high-flying Leicester City side on Tuesday night.

The Blues may be only five points behind the team in fourth place in the Premier League table but look rather distant from a side that spent over 200 million in the summer on player recruitment. This has been largely down to the club’s attackers’ failure to find their goal-scoring boots in most of their games this season, especially German forward Timo Werner.

There have been concerns raised by fans and pundits recently as they have all asked questions about whether it is Lampard who does not know how to use his attackers or how to bring out the best in them, especially given that they were all high-class performers before they were all brought to Stanford Bridge.

Chelsea had an array of attacking options even before venturing into the summer transfer market to acquire additions. They had names such as Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Olivier Giroud. But the club deemed them not enough and then decided to bring in the likes of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, and Kai Havertz.

Although the poor form of Ziyech has been down to the fact that he has suffered several knocks since his arrival, he has not yet showed any glimpse of the player he was at Ajax before sealing the move to England.

German duo Havertz and Werner have also not performed up to expectations so far this season, and it has been worrying especially for Lampard, who has now publicly called on all his attackers to become more ruthless in front of goal. Lampard said teams can’t win matches without scoring goals, and that’s why they need to start scoring.
