Premier League

Carragher names two positions that Chelsea must strengthen before the end of the transfer window.

Chelsea football club have been the most busiest premier league club in the current transfer window, and they have already added top class players like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech to the first team squad for the new season, it will be interesting to see what this new players can add to their team this season.

However, given the numbers of goals that Chelsea conceded last season, Lampard really needs to solve the defensive problem if he really wants to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Man City for the premier league title this season, though they have added Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell as two new defenders(a center-back and a left-back), they still need to add one or two more world class players that can strengthen the defensive positions for the London club, and former Liverpool player Carragher has reveals the main two positions that Chelsea must strengthen before the can become a potential league title winners this.

Below are what he said in an interview (via Metro)

 “Playing at Anfield towards the end of the season was the perfect example of Chelsea – goals going in at either end – and I still think that will be the case.

“They’ll be a great watch but until they sort out the goalkeeping situation and centre-back, to be honest.

“I love Thiago Silva, he’s been fantastic, but to come to the Premier League at 35, almost 36, is a tough ask.

“We’ve seen players like Laurent Blanc who came and played with Gary [Neville] at Manchester United. Blanc was a World Cup winner and found it tough when he came so it’s not easy to come in.”

I personally agree with this Liverpool Legend, chelsea needs another top defender in their team, though they have already agreed on a deal to bring Rennes goal keeper (Mendy) to the team, we will see if they will bring in another defender before the transfer deadline day, but given how poor Rudiger has been in their recent games and Thiago Silva will soon be 36, Chelsea really needs a new world class center-back in the squad.
