Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva have emerged as Frank Lampard’s two most trusted Chelsea players



After struggling defensively in 2019/20, this campaign has been a lot better defensively for Chelsea

Kurt Zouma has established himself as one of Frank Lampard’s most trusted players this season having secured the status of first choice centre back partner to Thiago Silva following the Brazilian’s arrival at Chelsea in the summer.

That was demonstrated by the manager picking Zouma to play in the FA Cup tie against Morecambe on Sunday when Lampard needed a result to slightly ease the pressure that has been building on his position after a run of one win in six Premier League games.

The French defender was entrusted to partner Antonio Rudiger at the heart of the Blues defence that kept a clean sheet in the 4-0 victory as Chelsea set up a fourth round tie against Luton Town of the Championship in a couple of weeks time.

Lampard has five centre backs currently at his disposal, a number that he wants to cut down in the January transfer window, but Zouma is firmly the manager’s first choice alongside Silva for the foreseeable future.

The Blues have kept six clean sheets so far this season in the Premier League, Zouma has played in five of them and partnered Silva in all five, the only exception being when the Brazilian missed the 2-0 win at Newcastle.

After Chelsea’s defensive struggles in 2019/20 in Lampard’s first season as manager when the Blues conceded 54 goals which was by far the worst in the top ten of the standings, they have improved drastically this season to this point.

The French defender has opened up on his partnership with Silva, who arrived on a one-year deal as a free transfer from Paris St Germain but is likely to extend that stay further.

Zouma told Chelsea’s official website : “He’s a very calm guy. He has got experience. He knows the game very well.
