Following Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle on Saturday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has outlined Chelsea’s counter-attacking ability as our ‘real danger’.
Tammy Abraham’s goal against Newcastle came after a brilliant counterattack by the Blues.
Lampard told BT Sport: “We can’t have it all our own way, but we put the game away with a professional performance.
“First 20 minutes we were great, we had control and all the possession.
“They came out in the second half and I always felt that the real danger from us would be on the counter.
“You saw that with Timo (Werner) on the break and then setting up Tammy (Abraham’s) goal.
“It’s very easy to play the safe pass but we had to keep making the runs and efforts to get in there.
“We played well, the result is key because the Premier League is tough and relentless. I thought the lads dealt with the challenge today and I’m really please.
“It’s pleasing, but I’m not going to get excited about being at the top of the table for five mins. It’s a long season.”
