Frank Lampard says he’s unsure why Chelsea are performing so badly at the back after a 3-3 draw with Southampton.
The Blues were leading with a 2-0 score in the first half against Southampton as Timo Werner scored a double, however, they conceded a goal from Danny Ings. Later during the game, Kai Havertz scored for Chelsea, while Che Adams and Jannik Vestergaard scored for the Saints.
“You go two goals up you want to finish it off,” said Lampard.
“It was the best we’ve played this season for sure at this stage.
“But Southampton are a good side. They put pressure on us off the ball. They put us under pressure after the first goal.
“My message at half-time was that the goal shouldn’t change too much. We never got to the same levels in the second half. We can do better.”
On his side’s poor defending, he added: “We are seeing lots of goals across the league and no manager is happy.
“I don’t know why it is. There are attacking players in this league and maybe pre-season and lack of working time plays a part. But we have to get better at it.”
