Are Chelsea focusing too much on strengthening their attack?

Chelsea’s attack looks impressive

After spending a season with the transfer ban, [team 18] have been very efficient in the transfer market since. The announcement of signing Ziyech from [team 629] was followed by the confirmation of [player 31823] from [team 277] as a Chelsea player. It is a sign of intent from Chelsea as they look to challenge [team 8] and [team 9] the next season. 

There is no doubt in the quality of those players to bolster their attack. Chelsea fans are already going crazy imagining a front three of [player 32438], Werner, and Ziyech with [player 2875858], [player 3139], and [player 798] all providing reliable back-up to [coach 95].

Without a strong defence will Chelsea not rule the World

The question continually being asked by pundits is: When will Frank look in the Market for a genuine World Class center-half? Chelsea defensively have been all over the place this season. They have conceded an awful 49 goals with 12 (4th most in the league) of those coming from set-pieces. Defense, in general, has been Chelsea’s Achilles’ heel this season, and oppositions have taken full advantage of an unsettled backline. 

Frank, all-season, has kept changing his defense with only [player 1330] being a constant presence. Meanwhile, the player from [country 32] has featured in 3 different positions, which shows the lack of consistency in Chelsea’s backline. Young [player 4655] shows good potential but is still not ready with [player 1316] and [player 4460] showing a lack of flexibility. [player 31837] looks their best defender at the club. Even though he has gone through a tricky spell lately, he is expected to play a part in Frank Lampard’s plans. 

Attack and Midfield look settled now. However the lack of defensive quality might cost Chelsea massively not just in the [league 8] but also in the international games. Defense seems to be a significant weakness in this side. Many top-quality center-halves are available around [country 41], with the apparent names of [player 61806] from [team 597] and [player 130142] from [team 2930] coming to mind. It’s clear that Chelsea might score a ton of goals next season, but without having the foundation at the back, the chances of success are minimal.
