Chelsea failed to convert possession into goals as the Blues lost 3-1 at Goodison Park to Everton on Saturday.

While Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted he was disappointed with Chelsea’s defensive performance against Everton, he also blasted our attackers for not being decisive when presented with goalscoring chances.

Tammy Abraham, Willian, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount were Chelsea attacking players against Everton and they all missed good chances against Everton.

Our attackers were guilty of taking too many touches of the ball when presented with chances and Lampard isn’t happy with the poor decision-making of his attackers.

“It’s as if we didn’t want to shoot at times. We are dribbling and passing around the box when I want to see us get a shot off,” Lampard said.

“We have to do more than what we did today. We dominated possession but we were playing a team who were playing with that extra bounce for Dunc [Ferguson].

“When you give Everton opportunities to get Goodison rocking, they will hurt you and that’s what we did today.

“First half we grew into the game but the goals we conceded in the second half particularly were really poor. The third goal I think is a package that shows just how far we still have to go. It was a really poor mistake.

“Kepa passes it straight to Theo [Walcott], we let him run and then there are still two opportunities for us to clear the danger and we failed to do that and were then punished.

“We’ve got into their box so many times today but only scored once. We have to be much, much better.”
