Frank Lampard is not happy

Chelsea lost 1-0 away to Everton last night.

And manager Frank Lampard was not best pleased after the defeat.

Jurgen Klopp and others had suggested Chelsea were among the favourites to take the title this term. And many observers have pointed to the quality Lampard has at his disposal.

But the Blues boss hit out at those perspectives. He said yesterday:

“It’s a long season. If it makes some people who are talking about us, ‘we’re going to win the league, we’ve got the best squad in the league’, it’s ridiculous stuff because, when you talk about best squads, you have to look at the teams that have won it in the last two, three, four years.

“Midfield players who have won league titles all over the place, experienced people who have won it and Champions Leagues. We have some, we have some but we also have young players and as a squad we aren’t there.

“If you ask me in a couple of years and I’m still here and we’ve won a couple of leagues I’d say yes – but at the moment people want to look at our squad and talk about it.”
