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.”
