Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted after the 2-2 draw against Bournemouth that he had mixed emotions after the game.

According to Lampard, he was happy with the team’s reaction to going 2-1 down but was unhappy with the team’s defending and failure to convert chances.

Asked whether he had mixed emotions after the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth, Lampard responded: “Possibly, because you could be happy with the reaction and that we score.

“Over the whole game I think we should win it.

“Started slow, but then when we got to grips that all we had to do was play the simple pass and move it quickly and they would struggle with our wing-backs and struggle to get to the centre-halves and we could move it.

“But we kept coming away from it, the passes were pretty clear. But generally we controlled the game in the first-half.

“Then we can go 2-0 up in the second-half early on, don’t take that. And from the set-piece, I think you’ve got to credit the jump sometimes, it was a great leap from him.

“But our reaction from that wasn’t tough enough, wasn’t instant enough. And the second goal I didn’t like at all, very poor individually.”
