Chelsea Really Missing Victor Moses - Lampard
Victor Moses brings a lot of stability to the Chelsea team and his absence is creating a lot of havoc for the Blues, so says Frank Lampard.
Moses is Antonio Conte's first choice right-wing back at the club.
But the 26-year-old has been out of action for nearly three weeks since limping off in the first half of the 2-1 defeat at former club Crystal Palace.
“Moses is a miss,” Lampard said on BT Sport.
“You wouldn’t have thought of that 18 months ago with what he’s given them in the right-wing back position.
“He’s [Conte] is covering it with Azpilicueta, he’s covering it with Zappacosta but it’s affecting the whole back five.
"And I think he will want to get back to knowing what his three is and working on it through the week.
“The players are going to have to react because I don’t think Conte is a manager that will change his way. He might change players in the team but they’ll have to work.
“Hearing discontent about training, they better get used to it because he’ll want to work his way out of it.”
Conte has handed opportunities to Davide Zappacosta and Cesar Azpilicueta in Moses’ absence.
But Lampard says his old club is suffering due to a lack of continuity, as emphasised by some naive defending in Chelsea's 3-0 defeat to Roma on Tuesday night.
Chelsea will have to dust themselves quick enough as Manchester United are coming to town on Sunday.
