Harry and Jamie Redknapp offer Frank Lampard Chelsea advice ahead of Real Madrid match

Harry and Jamie Redknapp have given their opinions on Frank Lampard’s return to Chelsea following the Blues’ disappointing loss to Wolves.

Matheus Nunes scored the game’s only goal to dampen the mood upon Lampard’s return, with a massive matchup against Real Madrid looming.

The 44-year-old was named Graham Potter’s interim replacement, gaining the title of Caretaker Manager at Chelsea only two years after he left under the previous ownership.

Lampard’s uncle Harry and cousin Jamie defended him to Sky Sports after the game, stating that he “had no chance” against Wolves.

Harry said: “They were poor! I’ve watched the game here, and it was a disappointing first half – they were awful.

“But what can you do, he’s had no chance to work with them players, he’s been there two days, so the players have to look at themselves.

“You look at that group of players, they should never be losing, week in week out like they have done. Or lose too many games to be in the top four.”

The former Spurs manager continued to offer advice to his nephew as he suggested a potential solution to Chelsea’s problems ahead of Wednesday’s match against European champions Real Madrid.

“I think they’re perfectly [set] to set-up three up the back [great] wing backs Chillwell and James, you’ve got centre halves galore,’ he said. ‘I think they’re well set-up to play that way, because they’ve got to make sure they stay in the game first and foremost and give themselves a chance when they go back to Stamford Bridge.

“Stay in the game. If you get beat by the odd goal, you’re in the game. Don’t go over there and get hammered. Make it tight, keep it tight, be difficult to beat.

“What a great game to have. Everyone expects them to lose, Chelsea have got a big chance.”

Jamie Redknapp, on the other hand, believes that Chelsea and Lampard should concentrate on their defense in midweek.

He said: “The most important thing when you go to the Bernabeu is not not scoring goals, but not conceding, and give yourself a chance when you get them back in the second leg.”

The expert concluded by advising his cousin Lampard to determine which players will comprise his best lineup as Chelsea attempts to advance to the Champions League semifinals this season.

“You’ve got to look at it now, get your best squad, best team. Look at a couple of players that he left out, Chillwell I’m sure will start on Wednesday.”

The Blues are currently 11th in the Premier League table, and while they are unlikely to be dragged into the relegation battle, they will not finish in the top four. Therefore, Lampard’s only opportunity for success this season lies in the Champions League.
