Chelsea have had some poor games in the Premier League this season under Frank Lampard.

So far, the season could be deemed as decent under the current manager with a number of positives to take home with and look forward to for next season, but there are also some low points that must not be taken for granted.

Chelsea have suffered defeats to Manchester United, Everton, Southampton, West Ham, Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester City, but Lampard rates the loss to Sheffield United as the worst performance of the season.

The Blues boss said: “Clearly I didn’t like the performance. I don’t know where it was on the scale, but it was certainly one of our worst days of the season in terms of the performance. You get what you deserve on that front.

“Defensively, we need to absolutely focus on the games ahead. I would love to have the consistency in the back four, the back two, the back three, whatever you want to call it, that you pick. That’s what you strive for, but unfortunately this season at times we’ve made mistakes and individual errors.

“You don’t want to concede that amount of goals. There’s many reasons when you look through the season at those goals. Sometimes I bemoan that we don’t score enough, that gives you the nature of feeling comfort in games and nervousness can sometimes create problems that can lead to goals but we know we’ve made far too many errors in terms of giving goals away and that is something we need to absolutely address.

“That’s the position we’re in. The only way out of it is hard work by the individuals involved, to get through this season, to try and be as successful as we can, because we’re still in a good position considering probably a lot of expectations at the start of the season, and then we’ll look forward.”
