Chelsea were rewarded with two goals and a clean sheet against Brighton on Saturday.

While Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was happy with the result, he also revealed what he wants from his Chelsea team.

According to Lampard, he wants his team to be sharp, move the ball quickly, be physical and have energy.

“We’re working a lot on trying to keep switching the play, moving it quickly from side to side,” Lampard said.

“Sometimes, when we forget that and forget ourselves for a moment, we slow it down too much and it’s something I don’t like to see.

“I don’t think it helps the crowd or the atmosphere when you slow it down, when you go back to the goalkeeper and go across sideways when you can play forward.

“At times, when we were at our best, we played forward, we were punchier and sharper, and that’s what made us create so many chances.

“I like watching teams that are sharp, that move it quickly, that are physical and have energy.

“We have quality, so it’s about trying to put that all together.”
