Concerns at Chelsea about many

goals against Chelsea already scored nine goals in the first five league matches, and that is worrying captain Cesar Azpilicueta and manager Frank Lampard in the run-up to tonight's Champions League game with Sevilla.

"Sometimes I get the feeling that we have to score three or four times to win a game. It's time we started working on that," said Azpilicueta.

His manager agrees.

"The other statistic is that of all the teams, only Manchester City are getting more shots on target this season than we are," said Lampard.

"That means that we collect many goals from relatively few chances. We try to work on that, but with a new team it also takes time."
