Lampard wants Chelsea to get deals done after FA Cup


Frank Lampard said Chelsea must “get it right” in the transfer market after a narrow FA Cup win at Hull City fuelled the head coach’s concerns.

A 2-1 victory at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday carried Chelsea through to the fifth round, but they were clinging to their lead late on against the Championship side.

With Tammy Abraham injured and fellow striker Olivier Giroud looking like leaving before the transfer window closes, it is clear where Chelsea must strengthen.

Head coach Lampard knows where Chelsea are lacking, despite expressing enthusiasm for goalscorer Michy Batshuayi’s performance against Hull.

“Recruitment, when you’ve missed a [transfer] window, is of course important and in the short term now it feels very important,” Lampard said.

Chelsea’s transfer ban prevented Lampard making signings when he came into the club in the last close season, but they are free to bring in players now, and the countdown to the window closing at the end of January is on.
