Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has blamed Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri for Tottenham’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw on Tuesday night.

Emerson was supposed to stop Lamela from finding a shot opportunity but the Italy international failed at it and Lampard insists it’s frustrating.

“It was frustrating, because it’s a thing we work on, defending our box,” Frank Lampard said after the game, as quoted by The Guardian.

“We did it well against Brighton and against Liverpool for most of that game, Mane scores a goal that’s very difficult to stop.

“Today we were doing it well but you sleep for one minute, if you don’t recover and defend a zone where people score goals then you’re going to concede. So players have to get better at that.”
