According to Frank Lampard, Absence of Victor Moses Big Impact On Chelsea’s Back Performance

Most observers and football fans consider N’Golo Kante’s incompetence to make Chelsea weak. But club legend Frank Lampard has another view He revealed that the absence of Victor Moses has also had a negative impact on the performance of Chelsea’s back line lately.

Nigeria’s versatile player is a top choice in the right-wing back-up since last season. But Moses has been pulled off the field since October 14 yesterday about the problem on his right foot.

Injury suffered when the Blues reap a painful defeat of the team of Premier League custodian Crystal Palace 2-1. Moses only played for 38 minutes in the match.

Since then Antonio Conte performs various variations in rotating the right wing side. With new players Davide Zappacosta and Cesar Azpilicueta alternating each other fill the position left by Moses.

The defense line composition is fickle

Azpilicueta position shift, making the central defender filled by other new players alternating between Andrea Christensen and Antonio Rudiger. That’s what then became a sharp spotlight Lampard, with the absence of Moses has greatly affected the composition of his former team back line so that makes the Blues game consistency degenerate drastically.

“Moses is an expensive loss. You will not think about it 18 months ago with what he has given in the right wing defender, “Lampard said.

“He (Conte) covered it with Azpilicueta, he also laid Zappacosta there and it greatly affected the overall defense position. And I think he wants to get back to know the formation of the three defenders is working out the maximum lately. ”

“The players have to react immediately because I do not think Conte is a manager who will change his course. He may change the order of players in the team but they have to work hard. ”

“Hearing dissatisfaction about the practice, they better use it because he (Moses) will work hard to get fit.”

Lampard’s comments are aimed at the embarrassing result achieved by Chelsea when Roma wolf-torn apart three goals without reply at Olimpico in fourth matchday Champions League Group C. The Blues defense after this may get a lot of criticism, especially Antonio Rudiger who appeared very nervous at his former club’s enclosure last season.

He made a mistake over the creation of Stephen Elshaarawy’s second goal, when the German defender let the ball move freely in the mouth of goal. In addition to Marcos Alonso and Gary Cahill could not cover his position well, they became the first British team to swallow defeat in the Champions League this season. (Source: BT Sport)
