Chelsea drew 1-1 with Irish side Bohemians in the first game of pre-season after giving away the lead in the final minutes.

Michy Batshuayi scored for the Blues after eight minutes before a late equaliser by Bohemians trialist Eric Molloy handed the hosts a famous draw.

Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink believes Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has a lot of work on his hands after the Blues drew with Bohemians.

Hasselbaink noticed one big problem with the Chelsea players – they held onto the ball for too long.

“They lost the ball way too easy,” Hasselbaink said, according to Daily Express.

“Players were having too many touches, sometimes seven, eight touches and it slows the game down.

“It will be a lesson for Frank to see players and in a way it will make his mind up.

“[Moving the ball fast] is his idea of how he wants to play the game.

“The majority of successful teams do move the ball quickly.

“We saw today, especially in the second half, certain players were dwelling a little bit too much on the ball. They didn’t have a solution before they had the ball.

“It might be that it’s pre-season, it might be that they’re not fit yet and it will come. For some it might be a little too much.

“That is for Frank to figure out, who those players are and who he will go further with.

“That’s why those games are so important.”
