Hate to say it

But zouma is not a top 6 defender and azpi has gone.

Really upset with Lampard today. Why bring on gilmour when just a goal ahead and being under so much pressure.
Why bring on Willian who is just the worst when we need someone to stand up and be counted.
Bats had one chance to run at the defence and he gave them the ball.

Why not bring on Christensen to sure up the defense. Anyone could see we had lost touch with the game and was only a matter of time before they scored but Lampard brought on a novice cm.

I really can't wait for all our injured players to come back so we can have better options on the field and the bench.

We should have won this easy, disappointing.

I agree on Zouma.

I do think Lampard's game-management needs improving, hopefully he will get better at this over time; but I do have some sympathy for today, as our squad options are limited due to the injuries we've accumulated.

Zouma is next to useless.
Can't believe we sold Kalas to Bristol City!

Zouma looks incredibly nervous this season. Surprised as he's the most experienced out of all the youth (bar Pulisic). He's not worth giving up on yet but I feel he's in a similar category to Barkley, this season is his last chance to prove he belongs.

Problem with Lampard's management is quite simple (IMO), he's too positive. You'd think a guy whose greatest managerial influence was Mourinho would have a greater respect for controlling transitions but so far he seems totally uninterested in the defensive. Simple things (to a Mourinho disciple) like off the ball positioning to close spaces either aren't there or demand so much of the players. There's echoes of AVB here, which is exactly why Lampard should be keenly aware of the dangers if he doesn't address it.
