Lampard was shocked Mourinho criticised the performance of Mount.

When told about Mourinho’s criticism of Mount, Abraham and Christensen, Lampard replied: “He didn’t like the performance of Mason Mount? Is that what he said? Did he? wow.

“Well, I can’t drag players out of the medical room to play if they are experienced or not, so these are the players that played in a game that we were clearly the better team for 45-60 minutes.

“What was evident that we made individual errors that led to four goals out of their five shots. So there’s the harsh reality for us.

“I don’t have to be too concerned about what anyone else says, pundit-wise or anyone, they have to speak.

“At the same time, what’s clear is the squad is what we’ve got and I believe in it.

“If we go in at half-time two or three-one up, as we probably should have done if we were more clinical and maybe had a stroke of luck here and there, the game would’ve been completely different.”
