What Lampard told Chelsea players after 4-0 defeat against Man Utd – Daily Post Nigeria
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, told his players not to be down, following their 4-0 hammering at Manchester United on Sunday.
The Blues got their Premier League campaign off to the worst possible start at Old Trafford, with goals from Marcus Rashford (twice), Anthony Martial and Daniel James.
But Lampard told his players in the visitors’ Old Trafford dressing room, to bounce back when they take on Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday.
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.”
