Frank Lampard claim and a ‘real problem’ – what Gary Neville has said about Chelsea this season

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has already had plenty to say about Chelsea so far this season.

Chelsea have had a mixed start to the Premier League season, winning two of their opening four fixtures – though there have been difficulties in the loss against Liverpool and the draw against West Brom.

However, there was also a penalty shootout defeat against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side in the Carabao Cup that will be an unpleasant memory for a little while yet.

The club’s transfer activity in the summer window was a success, with the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva among the big name entries to the squad, as well as keeper Edouard Mendy as the transfer window came towards a close.

Frank Lampard faces a difficult task in getting his new side to gel, but things are looking up for the Blues as they look to build on last season’s top four finish and FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.

Former Manchester United captain Neville has watched a fair bit of Chelsea over the opening couple of months.

Below we round up what he has said about certain members of the side.

No title with Kepa

Neville stated on Monday Night Football in September that without a change in goal, Chelsea would have no chance of winning the Premier League title.

Kepa Arrizabalaga started the season as first choice, but a number of errors led to the Blues signing Edouard Mendy from Rennes.

But before his arrival, Neville insisted that the Blues would need a new keeper to offer a serious challenge to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City this season.

“I don’t think [Lampard] is [happy with Kepa],” Neville stated.

“I wouldn’t be, but, yet I know full well, having been in a coaching position, been in a changing room, you have to back your goalkeeper.
