Chelsea won’t have an official party this Christmas and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard had urged the players to resist the temptation to go out alone.

Lampard is adamant there can be no players’ nights out due to the UK goverment’s lockdown mandates.

Lampard said: “I’d better read up on the tier system — there are certain factual things about tiers that a lot of us have doubts about.

“But I know the basics and the players should do by now and I will reiterate to them their responsibilities.

“I think the Christmas party thing of yesteryear has mellowed now anyway.

“Players are so well followed on social media that some of the parties I might have been involved in are a thing of the past.

“Responsibilities for players are big, as role models to the outside world, for their professional careers, to do the right thing particularly when they are playing so frequently over Christmas.

“They have to live differently to the rest of the public and focus. I will have those conversations.”
