Lampard Reveals Why Chelsea Drew 2 – 2 To Sheffield Utd At Stamford Bridge


Chelsea boss , Frank Lampard , has revealed why his side played a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in the Premier League on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

A first half brace from Tammy Abraham , a second half strike from Callum Robinson and an own-goal from Kurt Zouma ensured both teams got a point.

But , Lampard has now said that the Blues played a draw against Sheffield United because they switched off in the game after leading 2-0 in the first half.

He also said that his players lacked concentration against the visitors during the encounter.

“It is not the defence , it is conceding as a team so the lack of concentration or mistakes for the goals are moments when you defend as a team , as much as you attack as a team , Lampard

was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying after the match.
“We conceded because we switch off in a game that should be comfortably seen out at 2-0 up. That is not to disrespect Sheffield United , 2-0 is not the end of the story.
“I was clear with the players at half-time that this can either be 3-0 , and okay then this could be nice , or a potential 2-2 on our hands and the disappointing fact is the first goal as much as anything because that allowed it to happen. We only have ourselves to look at as a group , not individuals.
“And I could not care less that we have the youngest team in Chelsea Premier League history. It was a real plus last week , and the fact it was young today I don’t think relates at all.”
