“We have to aspire to be like Liverpool”, says Frank Lampard.

After a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool, Lampard insist his team performed the way he wanted.

On a Sunday Premier League clash, The Reds again maintained a clean sheet by winning against Chelsea at Stamford bridge.

The European champions defeated the Blues in the Carabao Cup in August and now another defeat made Frank Lampard realise that Jürgen Klopp side must act as an inspiration for his players and that they have so much to learn from Liverpool.

Lampard believes that his side were so much better in performance in defeat to Liverpool.

The homeside make a stirring comeback against Liverpool in the final half four but couldn’t dominate over Jürgen Klopp side

For the first half of an interval, Home away side were already ahead with two points. But N’Golo Kante’s last 71st minute effort made them to hustle for the victory.

The second half performance was encouraging for Chelsea. Lampard was quick enough to praise the goalscorer Kanye who made his first start since returning from an injury.

He told the official website,

We end being not surprised with Kante, which is not fair on him really.

He did it in the Super Cup without training, he did it today with probably not match-fit training, but he’s so important for us you put him in the team and he showed his qualities.”

But The Blues missed a lot of chances during the clash. When enquired if his team were better at the end of the day.

Lampard said:

On performance, yes. Particularly the second half.

With that, you have to say details lose you games. (Roberto) Firmino lost us the game because we didn’t mark him (for the second goal).

But the way we played in the second half was the way that we want to be, and we did it against Liverpool.

At half-time 2-0 down you can take it on the chin that this team is too good and we can’t turn it around, but we did the opposite. But we need points.

We have to aspire to be like Liverpool. They come here and don’t play their best and still win the game.

Liverpool are a strong team and you can lose. The difference between us and Liverpool is that we aren’t consistently as good as them or Manchester City week in week out. To work towards those levels is hard. It’s a daily thing.”

Author’s Take:

Liverpool have always been unbeatable on the pitch. The teamwork is excellent followed by strong defensive and attacking line. On the other hand, Frank Lampard must think of ways to built up a strong defensive line as they have already conceded a total of 16 goals in eight games.
