Fans ask Lampard to ‘forget Havertz’ after Liverpool defeat

Chelsea have been linked with Kai Havertz but it is at the back that the Blues should prioritize for quality reinforcements to challenge for the title.

Liverpool steam rolled past Chelsea before finally getting their hands on the Premier League trophy. That result perhaps means Frank Lampard might have a change of summer plans.

The eight-goal thriller saw the Blues pay for small mistakes across 90 minutes. Cristian Pulisic’s introduction reinvigorated them but it was too little too late.

The result sees them fall to fourth place behind Manchester United on the Premier League points table.

In the wake of the disastrous result, fans rushed to twitter and Frank Lampard to prioritize defensive recruits in the coming transfer window.

There were jokes about Kepa Arrizabalaga failing to keep out any shots on goal.

But that was not it. Lampard too came under fire for his FIFA-esque gung-ho tactics.

The twitter criticism has not reached Lampard, who praised his players and also got time to Mane’s Instagram live chat.
