Chelsea have been beaten twice by Liverpool this season, in the UEFA Super Cup and the Premier League.

Tuesday night’s FA Cup clash was the third meeting between the two sides and many expected Chelsea to be beaten by a dominant Liverpool side that has bullied teams this season.

However, Chelsea carried the day as the Blues were the better side against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Speaking after the game game, Lampard admitted that he was pleased with the team’s performance and also that of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

“It was an impressive performance,” said Lampard. “It’s hard to be comprehensive against Liverpool because they remain in the game because of the team they are, but I can’t ask any for any more: the spirit, the work ethic, the quality.

“You have to defend really well to keep a clean sheet against them, and we did. We defended with everything, played well, and deserved to win the game.

“In the first two games against Liverpool we might have played some better football, and had more control of the ball, but today we had an extra spirit about us.

“We can compete with the big teams, but what wins or loses games is what you do in both boxes,” added Lampard.

“Today we got an occasional slice of luck defensively, but with some quality from Kepa and quality defending from individuals, and we took two chances that won us the game. Those are the rules.

“We are trying to close the gap to the opponent today, and to do that we have to find consistency.”
