Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening as the Blues suffered a fourth defeat in the last five league matches.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed his disappointment at the scoreline and admitted that his side lacked urgency.
Lampard said after the game: “It’s a home loss. Not good enough from us which is the story at the minute. We need to be better.
“We needed more urgency and we have to make it more difficult for them.
“Top teams show consistency and that’s what we’re striving for. There’s a lot of work to do.”
Meanwhile Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has now urged Chelsea and Frank Lampard to spend big in the transfer market if the Blues want to make top four this season.
He told Sky Sports: “I think Chelsea will need to go into the market next month. This is a crisis now. If other results go the wrong way for them, their lead [over the top-four] could be down to two points.
“They’ve got Tottenham away next. It’s hard for them now. I think they have to go in the market. This squad, for me, doesn’t get into the top four.”
