Chelsea news: Souness reveals one worry for Lampard after Man Utd and Liverpool defeats | Football | Sport

Chelsea have lost their opening two matches of the season.

The Blues went down 4-0 at Manchester United in the Premier League last Sunday before the UEFA Super Cup penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday.

Souness admits Chelsea did not deserve to lose as heavily as they did at Old Trafford.

He thought they played well against Liverpool as well, but says that only gets you so far if you cannot put the ball in the back of the net.

“Sooner [the first win] comes the better, for confidence, especially if you’re introducing young players,” Souness said of Chelsea on Sky Sports.

“I think there’s really encouraging signs, the football they play.

“I don’t think it was a 4-0 last week. If they would have scored with Tammy [Abraham’s] shot, Emerson the full-back hits the crossbar, and then Ross Barkley where [David] De Gea saves with his feet.

“So they easily could have scored first last week but they didn’t.

“They ended up getting turned over in the second half and it did flatter United.

“But that’s now in the record books, a four-niller.

“I just worry about where the goals are going to come from.

“You’ve got a midfielder that are not goalscoring midfield players.

“They don’t have a centre-forward or two wide players that are going to get 20-plus goals a season.

“I think, for all the good football they play, they’ve got to come up with goals somehow.

“If you’re playing all that football but not winning games, it slowly but surely chips away at the confidence.”
