Chelsea 'on another level' vs. Liverpool - Lampard

Chelsea 'on another level' vs. Liverpool - Lampard

The latter has come in for some criticism after his penalty miss caused the Blues to lose the UEFA Super Cup to Liverpool.

Frank Lampard took plenty of positives from Chelsea's Super Cup game against Liverpool despite his team losing on penalties. He said: "I think the fans will be behind us".

Lampard also offered his backing to the young striker and praised him for showing the bravery required to step up and take a penalty in the mid-week clash.

"I saw a work ethic and a desire to run in behind teams and hurt them with our play I thought was great".

"Moments afterwards, somebody sitting behind a keyboard or a phone has said the most disgusting things possible". Unfortunately I missed one of the most important ones for Chelsea.

"I'm so angry for Tammy and angry for us as a club, because that's not what we're about. He gets in positions regularly and that's an indication of his character that he's not hiding".

There were good signs in that game despite the result - and again Lampard's side showed some real promise.

"This is a call to action - we want to know what they are going to do to tackle this insidious problem". We just have to build on it. "We've got three games now till the worldwide break and we'll try to win them all", said Lampard, whose team host Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

Frank Lampard's first home game in charge, will be an emotional one for him, but three points must be his main aim, against Leicester on Sunday.

However, Chelsea were a match for Jurgen Klopp's team for long spells and Lampard believed they were moving in the right direction after his first competitive game at the helm ended in a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United.

With the transfer window for European clubs open until early next month, a number of Chelsea's fringe players have been tipped to move on in the next couple of weeks. More than disappointed, that is probably the wrong word.
