Former Manchester United manager warns the Blues fans not to applaud fans and adopt a mentality of readily accepting the loss.
Jose Mourinho watched the match on from sky sports studio when Jürgen Klopp side managed to overcome Chelsea yet again.
Chelsea’s supporters who were overwhelmed as Frank Lampard’s side pushed themselves hard by giving the opponent a tough time in the second half. Many fans inside the ground applauded the players off the pitch despite losing a game with just 1 goal.
Although, the Blues lost, with the only score coming from N Golo Kante giving hopes to Chelsea right before 20 minutes from the time. Some fans think that the new system under Frank Lampard and the youthful players deserves to applaud for their performance.

He said: “I hope they don’t get used to it (losing) – that’s the important thing.
When you start accepting defeats just because your team play well and your players gave it their best, in terms of their application and commitment.
I think when you get used to it, big clubs stop being big clubs. It shows people are ready for the season and ready to accept what the season is going to be under a manager who is one of the best professionals and a potentially top manager.”
“The numbers say Liverpool are 10 points ahead of Chelsea – they aren’t going to fight for the title,”
The Portugal coach is certainly well placed to talk about Chelsea and pass on verdicts having managed the club for a period of five years between two separate spells. Mourinho is still jobless having being sacked as Manchester United manager last year.
Frank Lampard who has his youth players to rely on due to transfer ban is looking for his first win in a home game. Frank Lampard has his players support and he also tries to bring the best out of his squad as during the Liverpool loss they could have made a draw have they played well from the starting.
