Chelsea legend Lampard: This is where Hazard needs to improve

Having taken the decision to freeze two-time Premier League title victor Diego Costa out of the fold, Antonio Conte was forced into the transfer market over the summer.

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has today revealed his opinion that the club should invest in another centre-forward in January.

Despite the Spaniard settling in very quickly with nine goals in 17 appearances for the club, the former Premier League victor believes that the Stamford Bridge side need someone to compliment the 25-year-old.

Conte bought Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid in the summer for a fee that could rise to £70million.

He says it is clear Conte does not trust Michy Batshuayi, who was left out of the starting XI despite Morata being injured earlier this season.

Chelsea are now in third place in the Premier League table and nine points behind leaders Manchester City after 12 games of the new campaign.

"If you're looking at Alvaro Morata as your out-and-out striker..."

"Then you have to play [Eden] Hazard there and change a lot of things".

I think they are going to have to strengthen in midfield at some point but that may be next year. So I think maybe a backup striker.

"I think they've been given different obstacles this year, European football for one, injuries, not strengthening the squad".

"But I think you have to keep strengthening because everybody else is".
