Chelsea is experiencing difficult moments this season. Although Frank Lampard's team won the match against Bournemouth, the fans are still dissatisfied with the performance of most of the players. The special pick seems to be on Raheem Sterling and Hakim Ziyech.
The fans decided to boo them after the game. That probably says enough about the situation within the club and their dissatisfaction. ‘Our fans were fantastic today, so I personally appreciate their support. We had a moment at that end of the pitch where everyone feels good for a day, I think that’s important for the players and the fans.
In terms of the subs themselves, I think all of the subs we made had an impact. In terms of Ruben and Raheem coming on a bit earlier, I think Ruben gave us a bit of physical presence and calmness on the ball and Raheem, as you say, was involved in the goal.
Azpi came on and gave us leadership. Hakim came on and gave us an assist and played really well. I think the opinion can always change in a period. '- Chelsea manager said, as quoted per METRO.
Raheem Sterling and Hakim Ziyech: Frank Lampard reacts
Chelsea's manager decided to defend his players in whom he has great confidence.
Sterling and Ziyech came to the club as stars and were expected to show more. However, Lampard believes that there is still time for them to show their full potential. The fans are certainly impatient. ‘They’re two players, Hakim and Raheem, that want to do well as football players and they have big talent both of them.
If it’s form, it’s very much temporary and I think their class is permanent and I’m pleased for them today having an impact when they came on.’ They will have the opportunity to show exactly that until the very end of the season. They need to regain the trust of the fans.
