Frank Lampard has rued Chelsea’s lack of leadership and personality on the pitch in their draw versus Leicester City.
“We let Leicester get back into the game and in the second half I wasn’t very happy,” said Lampard, who won the Champions League and three Premier League titles as a player at Stamford Bridge.
“We didn’t have enough calmness on the ball and we allowed them back into the game. The performances we’ve had I’ve been delighted with big patches of it.
“We need to be ready when the game leaves us to grab it back. You need personality. We had it in midweek [against Liverpool] but today we didn’t quite have it.”
“I was under no illusion when I came here that there would be moments like this,” he added.
“It takes time to get to where you want to be. We have to work on the pitch and reflect on the things we need to improve.”
“I’m delighted for Mason and that typified how we started the game,” he said. “It was a really good start. At that point we were flying and Mason was driving it. He should be happy with that moment.”
