Lampard hints at January transfer activity

Frank Lampard has dropped a broad hint that Chelsea are likely to be active in the January transfer market.

The West London club are free to sign new players again after their FIFA transfer ban was lifted, and now their manager has implied that new additions will be in-coming at Stamford Bridge after his team were beaten in front of their home fans by Southampton on Boxing Day, with goals by Michael Obafemi and Nathan Redmond condemning them to a second consecutive home defeat, for the first time in 8 years.

It was a far cry from the accolades that both Lampard and his team attracted after their away win at Tottenham at the start of the week.

After the Southampton match, a frustrated Lampard told reporters that “When it’s all easy we were the greatest thing in the world, they were the greatest players and I was a great manager. And today it’s questioned.

“And it’s when you’re questioned that you’ll see the strength of character of someone I’d say.”

It was the first time since October 2011 when they lost back-to-back games with Arsenal and Liverpool that Chelsea had lost two successive matches in the Premier League at home.
