Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has warned his Chelsea stars not to lose to West Ham because he hates losing to our London rivals.

As a Chelsea player, Lampard beat West Ham 13 times out of 19 in the Premier League but he admits it’s the defeats that stick in his mind.

Lampard said: “I remember the ones I’ve lost more than the ones I’ve won. It wasn’t that great. As a player I was always determined against West Ham.

“I think that’s very natural when it is one of your ex-teams. That makes sense as a professional so I had that in me but I wasn’t always successful against them.

“I remember the feeling. You lose a game against a London rival, and it should hurt. That is what you remember.

“Has the feeling gone away now? It’s the same. It’s about being professional. This is certainly not a conversation about West Ham alone.

“Any game we might drop points in, you have that feeling. You have a night to stew. But it’s very important you lightly wipe the slate clean the next day.”
