Frank Lampard blames two players for embarrassing first-half performance

Frank Lampard blames Marcos Alonso and Thiago Silva for their horrendous blunder in the first half.

Chelsea astonishingly fought back from three goals down in the first half to draw 3-3 with West Brom and secure a point.

Chelsea academy players Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham helped the team secure a point after a disastrous first-half display in the backline.

Frank Lampard took no time to criticize Marcos Alonso and veteran Thiago Silva for their slip-ups from whom he clearly expects a lot more.

“Mistakes, clear mistakes. The first one, Marcos heads it into the middle of the pitch for them in a transition,” Lampard told Sky Sports.

“Thiago one is a mistake, he’s been around long enough to know that and we’ll certainly give him that one in his first game.

“Then Marcos loses his man for the third goal from the corner. Clear mistakes so you can do as many meetings as you want, if you make those mistakes you give yourselves a mountain to climb.”

“It’s two points lost. That’s no disrespect to West Brom,” he added.

“But to come here and understand the game, know that transition and mistakes would be something they would jump on.

“Counter-attack against and set pieces. We spoke about that before the game.

“You can’t legislate for pure mistakes which is what it was today, then it gives you a very difficult game to get back in.

“I can laud character, because we showed character and persistence, but we didn’t need to if we did things properly in the game.”
