Chelsea had gone on an unbeaten run of 17 games without tasting defeat, before recent defeats halted the team’s fine form.

From being third in the league before playing Everton, Chelsea are now 8th, having lost three of their last four games.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has now admitted that he may have to change the shape of his team, as he hasn’t been pleased with the fluidity of late.

The Blues manager said: “I think it helped but the players are the ones.

“As much as the players weren’t good in the first half against Arsenal, they were very good for a long period and were improving in that unbeaten run so it is a case of staying strong mentally and just bringing back the good basics to get you on that run, because we have a talented squad.

“There is a lot of uplift in it but you have to keep hitting the basics day in day out. The few defeats we have had recently are because we dropped off a little and it is my job to pick it back up.”
