The captain of the Blues could not hide his disappointment after the students failed in their trip to Goodison Park.
With a series of 9 unbeaten Premier League matches, Chelsea is extremely confident in the trip to Everton’s field. In fact, the stars of the green shirt team continued to have a pretty good game. However, the mistake of goalkeeper Mendy made the Blues hug the bitter fruit with the only goal from 11m.
This defeat caused Chelsea to miss the chance to take the top spot and put pressure on two direct competitors Tottenham and Liverpool. Of course, Coach Frank Lampard could not hide his disappointment with the performances from his students.
In the press conference after the match ended, the British military said he did not see Chelsea as a good candidate for the Premier League championship this season. Specifically, Spuer Frankie shared:
The Premier League is a long-distance arena and there are still many rounds ahead. A lot of people said that we have the best squad in the league and are very bright to win. This is really ridiculous and unsubstantiated.
Look at the teams that have won the Premier League in the past three or four years. Their squad has always had strikers that can score 30-40 goals a season and the midfielders have fought in the top competitions and won many championships.
Chelsea now owns a number of such players, but besides that we also have many young names and of course they cannot reach that level. In the next two to three years, if we reach that level, I will agree that Chelsea is a formidable name in the championship race. Everything is just plain unfounded now.
In addition, Lampard also defended Mendy goalkeeper after a blaming mistake that led to a goal of Chelsea in this match:
“We didn’t play at our best in this match. The first 20 minutes they (Everton) were more proactive and the turning point was at this time. With Mendy, we should not criticize him. Remember his impressive performances since coming here. All responsibility for this failure I accept. “
