‘Wasteful’ and ‘worrying’ – These Chelsea fans react to shock friendly loss against Kawasaki Frontale

These Chelsea fans have raised question marks following Chelsea’s shock defeat to Kawasaki Frontale, can Lampard sort the team out before the season starts?

Chelsea looked slow and sluggish in their 1-0 defeat to J League outfit Kawasaki Frontale earlier today, the Blues did craft some quality opportunities but they lacked that crucial cutting edge in the final third.

Their wasted chances gave one-time Brazil international Leandro Damiao the chance to fire his side to a surprise victory in the 86th minute of the tie, Chelsea’s below-par defending was on full show, the Blues scrambled hopelessly around their box and Damiao was left free to head the ball into the back of the net at the far post.

Chelsea may have been guilty of underestimating their in-form opponents:
