"Chelsea are short of a playmaker - Yossi Benayoun has been injured for a long time - and that means there has been no link between midfield and attack," said Desailly.
"Their midfield is amazing and their defence is strong, maybe they just need to find a playmaker - Kaka.
"They need to release the pressure on Lampard, who is expected to make the difference every time.
"Instead, Lampard needs to be able to pop up when he can instead of having to do it in every game.
"If the new coach comes in and has a bit of luck, then finally they will win the Champions League they want so much."
