But Souness believes big work must be done at the other end of the pitch.
"Oh big time [there are wider concerns for Chelsea]," Souness said on Sky Sports. "We were talking about it before, they've now conceded 48 goals.
"Chelsea are making inroads in the transfer market for goal-getters and goalscorers - you won't be winning any big trophies if you're conceding 48 goals in a season. I'm sorry.
"You're putting a hell of a responsibility on the front end to be scoring how many goals if you're conceding anything like 48 goals.
"It's poor and I would think he's got major issues there.
"I said before the show, if you looked at the last 10-15 minutes against Palace, how Palace never scored in that period, they had them rocking.
"They've been rocking tonight, every time they go forward in numbers, Sheffield.
"They've got Chelsea panicking."
