Lampard: What was ‘extraordinary’ about Liverpool clash
Posted On July 23, 2020
Frank Lampard addressed what will be a pressure cooker of a clash with Wolves on the final day after his Chelsea side succumbed to a 5-3 defeat to Liverpool.
The Blues only needed to avoid defeat to guarantee Champions League football next year, but in a topsy turvy affair, came out on the losing end via a 5-3 scoreline.
Liverpool initially looked like blowing Chelsea away, but Lampard’s men fought hard to reduce the deficit to one goal mid-way through the second half.
Describing his thoughts about the clash, Lampard told Sky Sports: “It was extraordinary, even when you say they that started to run away with it I thought we were in it.
“In match-play we were OK. They’re a fantastic team and we can’t afford to make those mistakes. If we don’t concede a fifth I thought we were coming.
“We have to suck this in and accept it here tonight because it’s where we want to get to.”
Chelsea now face a nervy final game of the season against Wolves, where the result they need could change throughout the afternoon depending on the ongoing scoreline between Man Utd and Leicester.
Regarding the Wolves clash, Lampard said: “It’s huge, we know the situation, it’s in our hands to get a result against a very good Wolves team.
“To get where we want to be the pressure is what we should have.”
