Angry Lampard Refuses To Blame Kepa After Chelsea’s 3 – 3 Draw With Southampton

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard could not hide his disappointment after dropping more Premier League points in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Southampton.

The Blues looked set to enjoy a straightforward afternoon when Timo Werner netted his first league goals for the club in quick succession in the first half.

But Southampton hit back through Danny Ings and Che Adams, and though Kai Havertz restored the hosts’ lead after the break Jan Vestergaard stepped up in injury time to seal a draw for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s charges.

Chelsea have now dropped seven points in their opening five games despite their huge transfer outlay over the summer, and Lampard acknowledges they have to cut out the mistakes.

 

“I am frustrated and the players are. They would be because the first half was as good as we have played this season,” he told reporters after the final whistle.

“Very much so, we played some great football. Get some good goals and we could have had some more. When you concede before half-time, you know that can change the tone of the game a lot. Then, we go 3-2 up and concede a late goal from a free kick.

“It is disappointing, you want to pick up points at home against teams like Southampton, irrespective of them being a good team who can make things very difficult for you. In the second half, we could have dealt with it better.”
