Revealed: What Lampard told his players following Man United’s humiliation

Asked if Chelsea ’s players needed to keep some perspective about the scoreline, Lampard told Sky Sports: “Yeah for sure. That’s the first thing I said [to them].

“We have to be grown up about it because it doesn’t feel nice. We’re Chelsea we don’t want to come here and lose 4-0, we don’t want to come anywhere and lose 4-0.

“But we know – and anyone playing the game knows – we put in a performance that for big parts wasn’t a 4-0, but we have to accept that and realise it’s probably three points and we have too many things coming.

“We have a game on Wednesday, the Super Cup, we have our first home game next weekend and we need to take all the good bits [from the United loss] but, more so, we need to analyse the bad bits and correct them.”

Lampard’s squad will have a chance to bounce back from their defeat when they face English top-flight rivals Liverpool in their UEFA Super Cup showdown on Wednesday night.
