New Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel had barely 24 hours to implement his tactics on his team, and it was a fairly good performance from the side.
Chelsea deserved to win the game and bossed possession all through, but a little bit of firepower was lacking in the final third.
However, the new German tactician was impressed with his side’s performance, and he hailed the team’s attitude, intensity, energy and organisation.
“I enjoyed it a lot because I was very happy with the intensity, the attitude, energy and quality of my team, we were well organised, had a lot of ball recoveries in the last third, never lacked intensity,” Lampard told the BBC after the match.
“We stepped up minute after minute in the second half. I was very happy performance wise, unfortunately we couldn’t score, if we take care of out performance like this the results will come.
“It reminded me a bit of our games in Dortmund, we had a very good training session yesterday, 21 guys who were totally awake, to try to do what we are doing – tactically, structure, where to accelerate the game, how to defend – I didn’t expect it to be on this level from one training and two meetings. It gives me a good feeling for the future.
“It was today totally unfair because I had no explanation for anybody on the side why they didn’t play. Every day will help.”
