Lampard questions “arrogant” Liverpool

Chelsea Manager Lampard has fired a warning to the direction of Liverpool saying “they shouldn’t get too arrogant”

The 42-year old was involved in a furious hot-word exchanges with the Liverpool bench.

The Blues boss was clearly unhappy with the referee’s decision on a foul on sadio mane which lead to the Alexander-Arnold scoring from the freekick.

"For me it wasn't a foul from [Mateo] Kovacic [on Sadio Mane] and there were little things that weren't going," 

"On the bench, I've got no problem with Jurgen Klopp, he's managed his team and it's fantastic.

"Some of the bench, it's a fine line between when you're winning and they've won the league, fair play to Liverpool Football Club, but also don't get too arrogant with it. In match play you get emotional and that was it."

Lampard was also asked about his thoughts on the game

"It was extraordinary. Even when you say they threatened to run away with it, I felt we were in it because I could feel the way we were playing," 

"The first half, in terms of football, we were in it, it was a turnover and a great strike, a non-foul that goes in the top corner and then terrible from us in defending a corner.

"Other than that, we were okay, so the goal gave us hope, the lads showed great character, they're a fantastic team and we can't afford to make those mistakes.

"Some of the stuff I saw from our team today was resilient, was some quality and at 4-3 if we don't concede a fifth, I felt like we were coming, but not to be."
