“We gave them three goals” – Lampard fumes at Chelsea’s weakness

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wasn’t at all impressed, as he watched his side succumb to a 3-1 defeat against Everton and interim manager Duncan Ferguson.

Everton got off to a perfect start under Ferguson, making amends for a shambolic display against Liverpool in the mid-week which left them three goals behind in a fixture that finished 5-2.

The Merseyside Blues largely dominated the first half of the fixture. With Richarlison opening the scoring with an early header in the fifth minute to put the visitors under pressure.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin added a second early in the second half, with Mateo Kovacic the only scorer for Chelsea ( 52′ ), as Dominic added his second just six minutes from time.

It was apparently a bad day for Chelsea and Frank Lampard, who couldn’t hold in his anger and was left fuming at his side’s weakness, following the loss.

“We gave them three goals,” Lampard told BT Sport. “I suppose the first goal will be seen as a good goal from their point of view but we know Richarlison’s good in the air, he scores a lot of goals and we didn’t deal with it.

“Then when you give Everton that goal to hang on to, we gave ourselves a problem. We didn’t create enough chances and we didn’t want to shoot enough, we dribble into their box and we try and beat someone else. We need to shoot more.

“And then the other two goals were just really poor from our point of view. You dominate a game with possession, you play a team that plays with a lot of fighting spirit at the moment when they’re fighting for their interim manager and for themselves and we’ve got to do more.

“I think we matched them on the work rate. Work rate is one thing, I expect us to match everyone in this league on that but sometimes physical contact is another.

“So if you’re not going to win headers or balls that bounce down and you’re not going to go through the ball and the man a little bit then at places like Goodison, especially, it’s going to be really hard to come and win.”
