Chelsea have been in poor form in recent weeks, after suffering defeats against Everton, Wolves and Arsenal.

It was expected that Chelsea will try to get a win against the Villans at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, but Chelsea only ended up playing a 1-1 draw, despite a first half goal from Olivier Giroud.

Chelsea had the better chances and played the best football, but could only get a draw in the game.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted that he was pleased with the performance of his team despite the draw, as he revealed that it was a much improved performance when compared to recent losses.

Speaking after the draw, Lampard said: “It’s a draw, against a good team, and the performance was good.

“I thought we deserved to win the game. We came through a difficult patch knowing that we want to improve. We saw a lot of signs today in the attitude of the team, coming to play, without having the final bit in the final third.

“It leaves us having to do more because the table’s still tight. We’ve had a funny patch, we’ve remained really close to the top of the league. Off the back of a really good run we’ve had a difficult little time and today I saw some really good signs that I liked.

“I wasn’t displeased with anything tonight other than the fact that we conceded that goal, and we didn’t really concede many chances in the game, and we didn’t score another goal which would have given us some comfort. But I was pleased with the players who came in, I was pleased with the attitude.”
