Frank Lampard’s first game as Chelsea manager ended in a 4-0 defeat, as Manchester United ran riot at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.
Up next for the Blues is the UEFA Super Cup final against Liverpool, and Liverpool are heavy favourites for this game following their outstanding season last term where they lost the league by just a point and won the Champions League in what was a very successful season for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Asked to share his expectations for the game, Jurgen Klopp has told UEFA.com:
“It’s a final, but the big difference between the Champions League final and this game is that it’s a new season, a different opponent.
“I think Chelsea have changed a lot: a new manager, Eden Hazard is not there anymore.”
Chelsea must bounce back from the defeat to Manchester United and come back stronger against Liverpool.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believes the scoreline was harsh on Chelsea as the Blues were the better side.
According to Lampard, mistakes and poor finishing cost Chelsea against Manchester United.
“Poor mistakes for the goal,” Lampard told Sky Sports following the match. “We controlled major parts of the first half. Probably poor decisions in the final third.
“In the first half we should be in front. It’s a lot easier for them when they’re 3-0 up. This is a counter-attacking team. They have pace and if you turn over the ball, they will counter attack you. We were the ones on the ball. We have loads of lessons to learn. It was no way near a 4-0.
“It’s clear I have tried to stay away from transfer ban and injuries we all know that. I tried to get N’Golo [Kante] on to give him minutes. I don’t want that excuse [injuries].
“Four mistakes. Not many more than that, they were clinical. We have to be grown up about it because it doesn’t feel nice. In the performance in parts of it wasn’t 4-0.”
