Chelsea seemed to have stabilised their defensive issues for now, having gained three clean sheets in their last four matches. And with Hakim Ziyech almost back, maybe it’s now time to use current Paddy Power promotional codes to wager on a potential Chelsea title run…
The defence was something that badly needed addressing, and Frank Lampard knew it.
Against Manchester United on Saturday, Chelsea looked a lot more solid at the back and earned a point in the goalless draw.
However, at the other end they failed to make anywhere near enough chances if they wanted to win the game, and this can be a huge risk. Edouard Mendy kept them in the game late on, otherwise it could have been a different story.
Lampard will now be looking to get that balance between attack and defence, and one man who will help with this, is Hakim Ziyech.
Having been out injured all season, he has been re-introduced via the subs bench in the last few games. But Lampard, via the Chelsea Website, has delivered a positive update on this..
“Hakim Ziyech is now looking like he is coming close to starting a game with his fitness.”
