Lampard facing greater defensive role as Hazard arrives at Chelsea

Frank Lampard is set for a more defensive role at Chelsea with Eden Hazard set to arrive.

The Lille star tweeted last night that he would be signing for the European champions.

With playmaker Hazard becoming an automatic first pick for the next manager, there will be a new position for Lampard.

His future will be in a deep-lying role, probably alongside John Mikel Obi.

Although Lampard's career has been based on driving forward from midfield to assist the attack, that will change next season.
