It’s midway through the season, and Chelsea are still fourth in the league, but the Blues performances of late have been below par.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is happy that his team is currently in the top four, but he’s disappointed at recent home results.

Lampard has urged his team to make Stamford Bridge a fortress and build some consistency.

The Chelsea manager said after the game: “I’m relatively happy overall but I would say that much more after Tottenham rather than today because we’re disappointed. It taints it because we’re not doing it at home in front of our own fans and we want to make it a fortress at Stamford Bridge like it has been in the past.

“Some of these results and performances don’t surprise me so we have to keep some perspective because we have a lot of work to do.

“You need consistency to finish in the top four because it’s the Premier League and everyone is striving for it. Clearly we need to win more than we have done recently at home.”
