Chelsea returned to football with a 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
However, their boss Frank Lampard was not perfectly happy with the match.
Despite Chelsea’s win, there were gaping holes in the team with weaknesses that need shielding if Chelsea wish to get anything out of their next match versus Manchester City.
“We didn’t know exactly what we were coming in to and now we have three points when some teams have lost points around us,” he said.
“It’s important we don’t lose sight of some of the errors in the game, we conceded a poor goal.
“We played well in patches but when they put us under pressure slightly, I thought we gave it away too easily – things we will definitely have to clean up on in the future games coming up.
“I want to hang on the positive note but it’s my job also to look at things we can improve on. It’s a good feeling for us but we’ll get straight back to work tomorrow because we know the games are coming quickly.
“It’s important for the group because we’ve all seen that the games are looking slightly different.”
Chelsea are 5 points clear at the fourth spot with 8 games still to go.
