Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has come out to say that some of his club’s new players need to wake up.
This is coming after back-to-back defeats vs Everton and Wolves, despite their blistering start to the season.
According to him, he hopes the consecutive losses will serve as a wake-up call to his players, because the performance have been nothing short of disappointing.
He added that his players must learn their lessons from the defeats quick as games are coming thick and fast over Christmas.
His words, “We need to reflect on the two games we have lost points in, which is disappointing, but also know this is a long season. We have to bounce back; the players have to bounce back,”
“We’re a young group, some players are new to this league, they need to wake up to what this is about right now, because games like the last two prove it.”
“They can have a little bit of a rest, hopefully not a happy rest because when you lose games you’re not happy, but physically the players need a bit of a break going into another really busy period,”
“The players must learn lessons because the games are coming thick and fast over Christmas.
“I know what we can do, and I know consistency is another matter. We had been on a long unbeaten run, great, but to really get to where we want to be it has to be longer than that, or if you have a blip you have to bounce back from that.”
