Chelsea’s six-game winning run came to an end as we were beaten 2-1 by the Premier League champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed the players were disappointed after the loss to Manchester City because they expected a lot from themselves.

Lampard said: “Experiences like this are great for them. They have to take them on the chin in terms of the defeat but also realise these are the kinds of levels we want to get to.

“The feeling in the dressing room – it looked like they are very disappointed. They expect a lot of themselves, so I think we will take an amount of confidence.

“Where we want to get to means we might come here and win (in future) and it might mean we can win titles, and win going forward, so I like seeing them disappointed.

“I think that that just shows the next question is the reaction we have.”
