Frank Lampard believes Chelsea players are 'too nice'

Frank Lampard claims it would make more than an overnight to fix Chelsea’s struggles.

The Blues have been blown away by Arsenal after they went 3-0 down inside just 34 minutes.

This was Frank Lampard’s sixth successive defeat and Chelsea are languishing 12th in the Premier League table.

The Chelsea boss acknowledges that the team has to go a long way to get back to their older heights of success.

Although Noni Madueke pulled one back in the 65th minute, a comeback was never on the cards for the West London side.

Chelsea have scored only two goals in six games since Frank Lampard was appointed.

The former England international has repeatedly defended his players and believes his side is too damn nice and struggles to compete as a team.

Lampard said: “The first-half performance was not good enough, in every way. We were nice to play against in every way, nice off the ball, passive.

“Things we spoke about before the game defensively, we didn’t do. We didn’t restrict space between the lines, we didn’t pressure the ball, we didn’t make contact with Arsenal players.”
