Frank Lampard revealed there wasn’t a ‘beautiful’ feeling inside the Chelsea dressing room after Saturday’s stalemate against Manchester United, but he was encouraged by more signs of defensive improvement from his side.
The Blues looked shambolic at the back in recent draws against West Brom and Southampton, conceding six goals in two games against sides who are likely to finish in the bottom half of the Premier League table.
Lampard spent the overwhelming majority of his transfer budget on strengthening an already formidable looking forward line, but three of his defensive additions impressed at Old Trafford.
Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy kept his third clean sheet for the club and produced two outstanding saves from Marcus Rashford to preserve a point, while Ben Chilwell was a steady influence at left-back. (Metro)
