Lampard has something to say about Aubameyang after Chelsea loss against Brentford; Here is what he said.
Although Aubameyang was brought on as a sub he did not start the match, he made some impressive touches and made sure he made some attempts and although none of these was serious nor resulted in a goal, it was as close as a goal Chelsea can get with Kai Havertz.
A 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge was the fifth in five games since Lampard took charge after Graham Potter’s sacking.
Post-game, he told reporters: “We’ll see about that [not enough goals in the group]. There is a balance of the squad to address, everyone can see that. You’re right about what can you do because this has been a problem that predates me coming into this.
“When there are not so many goals you also have to make sure you’ve players who can do a tactical job and work for the team. We saw that against Madrid, played a similar starting lineup in terms of goal, everybody told me there aren’t many goals, those are my options.
“We have to keep working and fighting to try and create opportunities to score goals. I think it’s two things. Maybe there aren’t goals so much in the team and when you are low on confidence, that last bit, that last chance. Auba comes on and has a couple of moments. Auba hasn’t played so many minutes, maybe a fresh Auba comes on and scores those goals.
“There are different parts to that. It’s a clear issue with the squad hence why we haven’t scored enough goals for a team like Chelsea.”
He added on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang improving his side: “Yeah, I think so. Auba has been a tough one for me because I have complete respect for him as a player, scored 300 and whatever goals in his career.
“He couldn’t play the two Madrid games for me because he’s not in the squad. He came on against Wolves. For a No.9 particularly to be sharp and to be playing regularly is key.”
