Tony Cascarino insists Frank Lampard has made Chelsea better without Eden Hazard.

Lampard was appointed as Chelsea manager in the summer when star player Hazard moved Real Madrid. 

The Blues boss was under high pressure and the season started for the club not as well as they would like. 

However, the club went back to winning ways.  

Since losing at home to Liverpool on September 22, Chelsea have beaten Grimsby Town, Brighton, Lille, Southampton, Newcastle, Ajax and now Burnley. 

“You can have one player who is so good for you that you’re so reliant on him and you keep giving him the ball,” the former Republic of Ireland told talkSPORT . “Now you can give it to Mason Mount, he might create something for Tammy Abraham, Jorginho is getting on the ball far more.

“Let’s remember who’s not playing for Chelsea at the moment: N’Golo Kante, their best defender Antonio Rudiger. So you have to turn back and think there’s a lot that he [Lampard] is getting right and the team is reacting to a lot of big players that aren’t at the club or not playing.”
