Frustrated Lampard warns players
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was left frustrated once again as his side fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Southampton at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.
Michael Obafemi gave Southampton the lead in the 31st minute, before Nathan Redmond secured all three points for the visitors in the second half.
Following the defeat, Lampard admitted that his team need to learn if they’re to overcome sides in front of their own home supporters, having fallen to a second consecutive defeat at Stamford Bridge.
“It’s a similar story, it felt the same as recent games,” said Lampard in an interview with Amazon Prime.
“You have to credit Southampton for that, they were organised and they got their goals on the counter.
“But we need to be better at breaking teams down, simple as that. We need to do more.
“I think we’ve got enough to be better than we were today, and what we’ve been at home.
“It needs to be a quick learning process now for us. There’s a difference between going to Tottenham in a game that opens up because they have a go at you, and being able to do things with the space that opens.
“But when there’s no space, and it’s close, that’s a different question, and we’re not answering that.
