Alan Shearer has revealed his belief that the first three goals Chelsea conceded against Manchester United will be a ‘huge concern’ for Frank Lampard, report the Express.
The media and pundits alike were all delighted to see Lampard be given the opportunity to manage Chelsea when he was confirmed as our new head coach earlier in the summer.
It hasn’t taken long for them to get on his back. One game, in fact.
After Chelsea were defeated 4-0 by Manchester United on the opening day, pundit Alan Shearer has revealed what he believes will be a considerable concern for Lamps.
Shearer is quoted by the Express saying:
“Starting with a sloppy penalty in the first half, then the two goals we’ve just showed [with mistakes] from [Cesar] Azpilicueta. Now, it’s probably acceptable, the fourth, because you’re trying to chase the game, you’re trying to commit men forward to try and get a goal and back into the game. So this is sort of understandable when you’re outnumbered at the back. But the first three goals will be a huge concern for Frank I think.”
It’s hard to imagine Lampard will be overly concerned about individual errors, considering the team performed pretty well as a collective over the course of 90 minutes.
Although, we wouldn’t expect any of the pundits in this country to be anything other than lazy in their analysis. They’re just waiting for their opportunities to criticise.
