Frank Lampard was not taken aback by Jose Mourinho’s accusation of Chelsea players using penalties to their advantage.

Mourinho felt that Chelsea have coerced the officials to get awarded penalties in defence of Harry Kane.

Speaking earlier this week, Mourinho said: “Kane? I think you are confused.

“You could be speaking about some Manchester United players, some Man City players, some Liverpool players, some Chelsea players.”

Chelsea have already had eight penalties this season but Lampard insists none of those were awarded for a player diving inside the box.

“I wasn’t surprised by those comments,” he said. “There have been no incidents of diving at Chelsea this season that I’ve seen.

“But I wasn’t surprised by it, no. I think it’s very normal that managers in and around the clubs challenging sometimes mention others with those statements. It didn’t affect me.”

He added: “I’m not going to tell Jose or any other manager how to do a press conference.

“I think we all know when we watch these penalty decisions, we know what ones are penalties, what ones are dives, ones that are cleverly bought. I don’t want to dwell on it.”
