Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has come out to say that he is concerned over his team’s poor form. He recently revealed that he knows the club has problems currently, and his players cannot ignore the reality of the situation.
According to him, he is very worried about the slump because 5 losses in 8 games is nothing to write home about in the EPL.
He added that Chelsea were beaten by a better Leicester City team, and he can’t tear his players apart for the performance because they are so dissappointed too.
His words, “We won against Fulham without playing brilliant, from that we come and lose a game so it’s a small step backwards,”
“I am worried about the slump – from the form we were in to get so quickly into the form we’re now in and we’ve had some wins, but five losses in eight isn’t where we want to be.
“It takes character to get out of that – I’m not against the lads in the dressing room because they’re disappointed. It’s a young team and it’s a big lesson that if you come off it and think you’re fine then you’ve got to get yourself out of the hole.”
Beaten by the better team. They were sharper than us, ran more than us and they looked in form – we looked out of form. Disappointing goal form a set piece and the second goal is just not good enough,”
“There were quite a lot of moments where our sharpness wasn’t there, those are moments you have to dig in and the basics are important like running and sprinting and we didn’t do that.”
“The most disappointing thing is to come here and lose the game but the basics off the ball are important.
“The game on the ball was a bit slow at times but it was okay, we created a few opportunities and I thought it was a penalty (a first-half foul on Christian Pulisic just outside the box) but I’m not going to lean on those things. We weren’t good enough.”
