Chelsea coach Frank Lampard opens up after yet another Brighton loss; Here is what he said after the loss.
Frank Lampard is very upset after loosing yet another match to Brighton and he does not have ay hopes of still being in the UCL after this kind of play by Chelsea players.
Substitute Danny Welbeck had levelled at Stamford Bridge after Conor Gallagher’s deflected strike gave Chelsea a fortunate lead.
Lampard said, “I’m disappointed on every level. The better team won. They could have won by more. They played like a team. They’ve been together a long time.
“Not good enough. All the basic parts of football – to fight, to run – we were short on. Not a question of commitment as such. We have a big game on Tuesday [against Real Madrid]. There’s no point being too down but we have to understand why today went the way it did.
“Some players physically couldn’t be able to play Wednesday, Saturday, Tuesday. Some of those changes were forced and some were opportunities. In a modern day squad you have to be ready to come in.
“As a team we were short today. Where can we get better quickly? For me it’s the football basics.
“In football a story can change very quickly. Real Madrid in the Champions League is the pinnacle of football. There’s things I’ll say to the players that I’ll keep in house. Chelsea fans will be coming on Tuesday to see a team give everything to turn it round and that’s what we have to do.”
