Chelsea lost 3-1 to Manchester City on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.

The loss means the Blues have now won just once in our last seven games in all competitions.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists his Chelsea team has what it takes to bounce back because we had gone 16 games unbeaten earlier this season.

Asked if his Chelsea players have the mettle to bounce back, Lampard told Sky Sports: “Without a doubt we have that. Without a doubt.

“Because we went 16 games unbeaten. A month ago everyone was asking me about where we could [finish], a new contract, now people will be saying the opposite. I can’t control that, we can’t control that.

“What we can control is what we do tonight, tomorrow and the next day, what we do against Morecambe, and what we do against Fulham. And I have belief in the group, so I hope this doesn’t sound like I’m criticising players.

“I’ll be the first to look at myself today, but when I look at the squad I know that there is uplift in this team.

“But I know where we’re at, because I see it, and I know the work it takes to be on the level that Manchester City churned out today – because that’s been a lot of years in the making. It’s normal as a squad we take little knocks along the way, now’s a test.”
