Lampard Reacts After Chelsea Drew 2 – 2 To Sheffield United At Stamford Bridge

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has revealed why his side played a 2-2 draw with Sheffield United in the English Premier League on Saturday according to 36Naija sports.

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

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

Also, he said that his players lacked concentration against the visitors during the entire duration of the match.

“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.”
