“Chelsea’s excessively cautious and monotonous gameplay perplexes and explodes!”

Following Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest, Frank Lampard went on a perplexing rant about the team’s lack of “killers at the top end of the pitch”. He bemoaned their defensive goals, fitness, and general frustration, crediting these factors for their inability to secure a victory against a newly-promoted team. Despite understanding exactly how Forest would play, Chelsea played too safe and sideways, a tactic that would undoubtedly result in a resounding defeat against a team like Man City. Lampard must see more urgency from his lackluster team if they hope to finish the season on a high note. Sitting in 11th place in the Premier League with only three games left, Chelsea are out of reach for European football next season. In their next match, they face league leaders Man City away at the Etihad. The home fixture was a crushing 1-0 defeat. Man City lead the table by a comfortable four points, with a game in hand compared to second-place Arsenal, who saw their title dreams all but disappear after a shocking 0-3 loss to Brighton.
