Lampard rues more quickfire concessions from Chelsea

A frustrated Frank Lampard couldn’t help but ask a question of his players after a sloppy 2-2 draw with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The Blues conceded two goals in four minutes early in the second half but rebounded to draw the match, days after conceding… two goals in four minutes early in the second half in a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Lampard labeled the Bayern loss “a harsh lesson,” but it may have gone unlearned.

“Against Bayern we conceded twice in a short space of time, it’s not the first time,” Lampard said, via the BBC. “Could it be a lack of concentration? Possibly from the players.”

As expected, Chelsea was much better than the Cherries on the day.

Chelsea took 23 shots to Bournemouth’s nine, but only six were on target on a day the Blues maneuvered well in the final third.

In addition to the lack of focus at the back, the finish was not there up front aside from in-form Marcos Alonso.

Lampard was asked whether pressure got to his men.

“We have got people who have been in and around it,” he said, via Football.London. “We have to dig in at the moment. There are question marks in both boxes. We have to get that right.”
