Chelsea surprisingly lost 3-2 at West Ham on Wednesday night at the London Stadium, a result that meant we failed to leapfrog Leicester City into third place.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard revealed after the game why the Blues failed to get all three points at the London Stadium on Wednesday night.

According to Lampard, Chelsea’s failure to make recovery runs when West Ham counter-attacked was the reason for the defeat on Wednesday night.

“It happens, it is the Premier League and if you make mistakes like we did, we dominated the game in terms of possession, but make mistakes and teams will hurt you,” said Lampard.

“I’m not happy with any of the goals. You don’t get given victories for scoring two goals, you have to be better than that.

“There were moments they counter-attacked, which we knew they would. There were details in the game which we knew but we lost because we didn’t get them right.

“It is why we are fighting for top four not one or two, because we don’t get things right as much as the big boys do. I am not happy with tonight but at the same time we are two points ahead of Manchester United, who have been going great for some time.

“If you don’t get details right in big games, you’re going to drop points. I think at times we have played really well this season. As a group we need to find more consistency.

“We have to defend the moment better. Against West Ham you have to make recovery runs. That is the bit we got wrong.”

  1. The boys were too casual

  2. Please Lampard should stop using Tammy Abraham, Michy Batshuayi is more far better than him give Michy Batshuayi chance to play and you will the est of him.
    Or you can even give Armando Broja chance to play I believe he will be better than Tammy Abraham.
    The problem of our ball yesterday is that we don’e have a striker that can scor goal for use.
    And you can also read a match that you are going to play and understand that you don’t have strikeres that can scor goals Pedro is a good player he can do even more better than the strikeres we have so why not use him in the front side.
    Lampard please think about this.
