Graeme Souness concerned about Blues' lack of firepower following heavy 4-0 defeat by Man United

Graeme Souness admitted he feared that Chelsea needed a new striker after suffering a heavy 4-0 defeat by Manchester United in their first Premier League game of the game. New boss Frank Lampard saw Marcus Rashford  strike twice with Anthony Martial and Daniel James also on target at Old Trafford.The visitors hit the bar twice but were unable to breach their rivals defences and Souness believes this could become a serious problem during the season, despite encouraging spells of possession.

They looked nice and tidy.Easy on the eye but I will go back to what I said before the game, I worry where the goals will come for Chelsea. They just need a proper centre forward. There is a lot to like about Chelsea but they’ve lost their best player.

Young forward Tammy Abraham started up front and hit the post but was unable to scoreLampard opted to start young striker Tammy Abraham up top, with Pedro, Mason Mount and Ross Barkley providing support, but the whole team struggled in front of goal.

These woes come after last seasons top scorer Eden hazard was sold and, with a transfer ban in place, a replacement could not be bought. I admire them the way they try to play football. They need a different type of midfielder. Do any of them look like they are going to threaten the goal? If you are playing against Chelsea your midfielders are always there in front of you.
