One problem Frank Lampard has not been able to fix in the Chelsea squad this season is the lack of goals from midfield.
Chelsea were top of the premier league table at some point this season, when Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham were finding the back of the net regularly.
As soon as their goals dried up and with no support from midfield, Chelsea has been sliding down the premier league table at an alarming rate. The Blues are currently 9th in the premier league table and the 3-0 win over West Ham is the only time they have scored more than 1 goal in the last 6 league games.
Apart from penalty taker Jorginho, no Chelsea midfielder has scored more than 1 premier league goal this season.
Both Ngolo Kante and Mateo Kovacic are yet to score a premier league goal. Mason Mount have found the back of the net just once in the premier league this season.
As Chelsea midfielder continues to struggle for goals, one of their loan midfielders have scored more than once in the premier league this season.
West Brom maybe 19th in the premier league table, but Chelsea owned Conor Gallagher is impressing on a regular basis.
The 20 years old midfielder has scored 2 long-range premier league goal for West Brom this season.
Chelsea are missing a player who is capable of shooting from range. We have seen them trying to work the ball into the opponent’s penalty area many times this season when shooting would have been the best option.
Recalling Conor Gallagher, who is capable of shooting from outside the box could help improve Chelsea chances of scoring against teams that are set-up to defend deep.
Gallagher is a hard-working versatile midfielder but more comfortable in the box to box role as a central midfielder.
Before joining West Brom this season, Conor Gallagher have spent time on-loan at Charlton Athletic and Swansea City.
He has been with Chelsea since he signed for the academy at the age of 8.
Frank Lampard is reportedly a big fan of Conor Gallagher.
