Frank Lampard was a happy man on Saturday evening.
The night began on a rather tough note with Christian Pulisic pulling out due to a hamstring blow minutes before the game began. However, when the final whistle blew, Chelsea had kept their fifth clean sheet in the last six games, Werner and Ziyech had scored and the Blues boss was a happy man.
He said, “I thought it was a very complete performance. They make it very difficult for you and you know you have to defend your box well, be very strong on first and second boxes. I wanted that to be one focus and the other focus to be how we keep developing on the ball.
“That’s what really pleased me today – some of the passing and movement in the team from minute one until the end of the game was very good and it feels like a nice step forward.”
“There was certainly balance there today and we worked on that. Even though we can’t work so much physically at the moment, we talked about it a lot yesterday and on the training ground.
“That’s part of the process when we’ve brought in new players. When you’re keeping clean sheets and scoring goals, you’re going in the right direction.”
