Chelsea lost to Wolves 2-1 just few days after Everton ended their 17 games unbeaten run making this their first back to back Premier League defeat in almost a year.
As expected everyone in the Chelsea squad were disappointed with the result including the fans and obviously Frank Lampard included.
Speaking in an interview after the match, Lampard expressed is disappointment and claimed the inability of the team to follow a tactical instruction and stop Wolves counter attacks in the second half cost Chelsea the game.
He also added that the performance was poor and poor performance leads to poor results in the Premier League.
Quoting from Lampard’s post match interview;
We should’ve seen the game out. If you’re not playing well, you should hang on, not allow counterattacks.
The message was very clear about their counterattack. We had enough players to deal with it but we weren’t prepared to counter-press.
Performance is what gives you results. This is the Premier League and if you don’t perform, you lose games.
