Chelsea’s home form this season has been below par as the Blues have struggled to break down opponents who come with defensive tactics.

The Blues have failed to score in two of our past three home league fixtures at Stamford Bridge, and have only scored 11 goals in nine matches and four wins in that time.

Chelsea bounced back from a recent blip to beat Tottenham 2-0 at the Tottenham Stadium in what was a very good Chelsea performance, and Lampard is backing his side to find a way against teams playing deep at the Bridge.

“We’re all human and there’s a lot of demands on teams and on individuals to keep reproducing a high level of performance,” the Chelsea manager said. “We can’t disrespect a Bournemouth or a Tottenham or a West Ham or an Everton to think that they won’t have their day against us or make it difficult for us.

“The onus is always on us to find a way. Bournemouth and Tottenham were completely different games. Against Bournemouth we couldn’t break a team down that came here very organised and determined not to give us space in behind or in between the lines.

“Tottenham was different – we had space down the sides and we used it really well so I think sometimes inconsistency will always be there. It’s about how much you fight to get it as minimal as it can be, which has probably been the beauty of Liverpool and Man City in the last two seasons because they’ve managed to bring the inconsistency levels down and we’re working towards that.”
