Chelsea manager Frank Lampard praised the team’s collective effort to shore up their defence but said players must guard against complacency when they host Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday.
“There’s always different parts to it,” Lampard told a news conference on Friday. “Individuals have made good performances in that period. The collective is a reflection of that.
“It’s driven by the players, always will be. We must never relax. It’s such an important part of the game.”
Lampard said Chelsea have found a fresh balance in the team with new signings Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech being among the goals in their last three victories.
