With Chelsea drawing against Bournemouth with 2-2, it appears as though the Blues’s top 4 position will be threatened.

It’s not an ideal score, but Frank Lampard believes the match with Bournemouth showed Chelsea’s character.

“We should win, we had many chances,” Lampard told Premier League Productions. “We had a bad 10-minute spell where they scored and that I don’t like. I’m pleased with the character to get a draw but we should win the game.

“Against Bayern, we conceded twice in a short space of time, it’s not the first time. Could it be a lack of concentration? Possibly from the players.

“People talk about the defence but if you are 1-0 up and leave teams in the game than one set piece can change the game. We should score more goals and then we don’t have that problem.”

“We expected a fight and they gave us a difficult game but we should win the game, we had a lot of possession and chances,” the former midfielder added.

“The character of the team was great, it wasn’t for the want of trying but we need more goals.

He has also praised Marcos Alonso for scoring the late Bournermouth goal.

“Marcos Alonso has had a big week but I don’t want my left-back top of the scoring charts. I want our attackers scoring goals and they haven’t.

“We wanted to win, we should have won but it’s a difficult league. It’s that cut throat part of the season. If we keep having games like this and we are not clinical it’s tough.

“The way the season has panned out, we should be pleased that we are fourth but it means nothing at this stage. If we manage to get in the top four the achievement is huge but we are a long way from that yet.”
