Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says his players did not do enough to beat a resolute Bournemouth side who left Stamford Bridge with a 1-0 win on Saturday.
A Dan Gosling goal with five minutes remaining in the game, saw Chelsea suffer back-to-back defeats in the league, following last weekend’s defeat to Everton.
For Bournemouth it ended a run of five straigh games without a win and move them farther away from the relegation zone.
“I didn’t get excited in the great run that we had, the Premier League is tough and I felt there was a lot of improvement needed, and that’s proved true,” Lampard said after the match.
“I think it’s a reaction time for everybody, myself, the players. Fans are coming here and watching us at home struggle to beat teams that we should beat.
“I expected us to offer more to break a team down that was as organised as Bournemouth were.
“Sometimes you can work on things all week and recreating them on a match day is a difficult thing. Today we were too slow with the ball.”
Despite the defeat Chelsea remain fourth on 29 points in the league table.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
