Chelsea boss Lampard on market: We need to replace Hazard

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits he'll be seeking attacking signings next month.

Lampard was asked about his transfer plans following their 2-1 Champions League defeat of Lille.

He said, "The transfer window will be a bit fluid and there will be discussions about where we can strengthen.

"We lost a lot of goals and creativity with Eden [Hazard]. We need more competition in those creative areas."

On management, he added: "As a manager you realise the work that goes in behind the scenes - all the work that you put in and the staff put in to prepare for each game. You realise now that footballers have it easier - not as easy as the pundits - but it life is definitely easier as a player, you understand that more as a manager."
