It’s clear for all to see that Chelsea have had a poor start to the season. A 3-1 win against Brighton, followed by a 2-0 loss to Liverpool and then a 3-3 draw against West Brom where they had to come back from 3-0 down.

Beside the unimpressive results, the team play has been disjointed at times, and there’s a huge gap deep in midfield, and the defence is still far from being okay.

Speaking after the 3-3 draw against the Baggies, Lampard blamed it on lack of pre-season football, as Chelsea played only one pre-season game.

Lampard also pointed to the mistakes made by his players, as he admitted that the draw had nothing to do with his tactics.

“We will get a lot better, we’re still finding our way with new players and a lack of pre-season. Today is part of the process of getting better.

“There is a lot we can keep getting better at. I’m not going to criticise every part of our game, I think they had three shots on target and got three goals.

“There were genuine mistakes. There was nothing tactically you can analyse again and again – there were just pure mistakes.”

    Excuse after excuse. He should pick players that are fast. Alonso is not for this team.
    The coach should look himself in the mirror.
    Every team had 1 or 2 weeks of pre season
    This was a big embarrassment and I see this continuing
