Lampard disappointed with Chelsea loss: We should have won tonight

Chelsea lost to Westham United on Wednesday night as Andriy Yarmolenko inflicted a tenth Premier league defeat of the season on them.

Chelsea Boss Frank Lampard has expressed his frustration and disappointment at his side’s defeat despite dominating vast majority of the possession but admits “that there has been many of those moments throughout the season”

Leicester City lost to Everton before Wednesday’s night London Derby but the blues couldn’t capitalize on the result.

“I wouldn’t say it’s the story of our season, but there have been so many of these moments,” 

“We had a good restart, three good results, and tonight we had the opportunity to go third. 

“In a match like this, you have to do every part of the game well. You can dominate possession, which we did for most of the game, but if there are moments where you switch off, if you make one or two errors that lead to them scoring a goal that lets them go in 1-1 at half-time, you’re going to encourage teams on. I’ve been there and I’m aware of it. 

“The players have to show a bit of extra mentality and do the extra things that let you see a game through.”

When asked about how he was going to deal with the situation on ground, he said:

"We are two points ahead of Manchester United, who have been playing fantastic and are on a great run, Wolves are having a great season and they're behind us, Leicester have had a great season and we're just behind them.

“It's about perspective. We are upset because we wanted to win the game, we're footballers and we're in a good position. So there's no point in being down but I can't help but say the truth today which is that it's a game we should have won tonight.”
