Chelsea coach Frank Lampard has revealed three reasons why his team lost to Manchester City 3-1 in the Premier League on Sunday at Stanford Bridge.
Lampard said his players allowed Manchester to take control of the match, find space between the lines and play quality.
With goals from Gundoan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne, Pep Guardiola’s side scored all three points against Bruyne. However, Hudson Odoy’s second half goal was not enough to give Chelsea points.
“After 15 minutes, Citi controlled the game, found space between the lines and allowed them to play with the quality of the players they had,” Lampard said.
“The two goals were immediately in a row, and you have to keep believing, and for the other half, players find it difficult due to the level the city was playing with or without the ball. I did. “
When asked if the players were willing to bounce, Lampard added: definitely.
“Because I was undefeated in 16 games. A month ago, everyone was asking me where we could do it. [finish], New contract, now people will say the opposite. I can’t control it, we can’t control it.
“We have control over what we do to Morecambe tonight, tomorrow, and the next day, and to Fulham. And this criticizes the player because I believe in the group. I hope it doesn’t sound like that.
“Today I look at myself first, but when I look at the team, I see that this team has a ridge. But I look at it and know where we are. And I know what it takes to reach the level Manchester City has unleashed today. It’s normal for a team to knock a bit along the way, but now it’s a test. “
Chelsea’s next Premier League match will be London Derby with Fulham on Friday.
