Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he isn’t shocked at the result against West Ham, but that he’s rather disappointed.

The Blues were beaten 1-0 at home by the Hammers, as West Ham got their first win at Stamford Bridge in 17 years.

It’s a second Premier League defeat in a row for Chelsea as the Blues struggled to beat a West Ham side that has been struggling for most of the season.

Lampard admitted after the game that although he isn’t shocked at the scoreline, but he’s rather disappointed.

“Shocked isn’t the word,” he said. “I think the Premier League is what it is, no game is easy or given to you. I’m disappointed with it rather than shocked.

“Generally, collectively, we can handle that game better, and I think that is part of the process. I don’t think this will be the worst thing for us, as long as we react in the right way, because I keep hearing positive great stories about us over the last six or eight weeks. I always try to close my ears to them because I don’t like them because I understand what this league is and the fight that we’re in over the course of the season and there will be moments like this.

“We were never going to come through a season as invincibles or anything, it just was not going to be the way, so when these moments come they’re little tests for all of us and we have to pass them.”
