Chelsea need to learn from past mistakes, especially the defeats at home, claims Frank Lampard.
It was another disappointing loss for the Blues on Saturday night as lowly Everton carried out a 3-1 drubbing at Goodison Park.
Poor defending and careless passing ended up being Chelsea’s downfall but they are still 5 points clear in the top four. Lampard believes there are “home truths” that his players will have to face after two defeats within a week.
“There are home truths all the time, whatever game you play. The players need to consistently hear that,” he told reporters. “We have got a good bunch and good group in there. In the Premier League, the competitive nature of it there are going to be times where you have difficult patches or you lose games.
“It is certainly not the end of the world, but it is important that we take on board the lessons of games like [Everton] and West Ham. We have had a week where we were poor, fantastic and poor again. That lack of consistency is not going to get us where we want to be.
“They have to get used to it quickly. You can give them a tiny bit of room maybe for the fact of the youth of some of the team, but at the same time they might be young but they are not silly.”
Chelsea are due to face off against LOSC Lille in the final game of the Champions League group stage fixture.
