Despite taking the lead at the Etihad, Chelsea ended up losing 2-1 to Manchester City on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he had some words of encouragement for his players after they were beaten in an away Premier League game for the first time since the opening day of the season.

Asked by Sky Sports what message he had for his players in the dressing room at full-time, Lampard said: “The fact that it hurts to lose any match, but even more when you’re not used to it. In the league, and with our away form, we’ve been winning for a long time.

“We’ve got to take the positives, and learn from the negatives. We need to look at that – but let’s go again.”
