Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo is hoping for more goals from his midfield this season.

As boss Di Matteo prepared for tomorrow’s Prem opener at Wigan he admitted signings Oscar and Eden Hazard together with the rest of the Chelsea midfield must shoulder the load in front of goal.

Di Matteo said: “In certain areas we are a bit light, yes. But the two strikers we’ve got are very good.

“Fernando has started the season very well, scoring last weekend. And we need the other players to chip in — Juan Mata, Oscar and Hazard.

“Frank Lampard always scores goals, Ramires at the end of last season scored goals. So I think we need to diversify it in the team.”
