Lampard applauds Pep Guardiola and his team after beating them 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues were deserving winners after beating Guardiola’s side 2-1 at Stamford Bridge which led to Liverpool winning their first Premiere League after 30 years.
The Blues boss deemed Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola as ‘world-class’ and also admits that City plays the best football of any team. He knows that Chelsea has to go a long way to match the levels of these two sides.
“It was tough,” Lampard told BT Sport.
“When you come up against a team of Manchester City’s quality – in individuals, in the way they’re coached – for me, they’re the best, in terms of the way they play football, so great to watch.
“Pep and Jurgen Klopp are different class, hence why Liverpool are winning the league tonight!
“We had to work every bit that we could to try and get a result. We had to work defensively so, so hard and we did it, and we created the better chances on the night.”
“We’ve had the ball more than any team I think, regularly this season in games, the bigger percentage.
“But today against Manchester City when they play a false nine and they’ve got bodies in midfield, it’s really tough so we had to tweak a little bit at half-time, suffer in the first 20 minutes of the second half, but I think we deserved the win on chances.”
