Chelsea: Lampard delighted with Man United defeat than Leicester draw

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has stated that he was pleased with his side's display in last week's 4-0 defeat to Manchester United than Sunday's draw with Leicester City. The English manager's side is yet to win any of its first three competitive games with the Premier League encounter with the Foxes ending 1-1.

A defensive mix-up by Leicester gave Mason Mount the opportunity to open the scoring for Chelsea in the early minutes before Wilfred Ndidi restored parity with a headed goal in the second half. The results extended Chelsea's winless run in the league to two in two games.

Despite playing some quality football, Frank Lampard insists that the performance of the Blues was nothing to write home about and instead the showing in the first league game against Manchester United was quite commendable.

"It's a results business," the former Chelsea midfielder declared after the game according to Goal.

"It's strange because the performance against Manchester United overall made me happier than today even though it was a 4-0 result.

"We need both. I believe we have both in us because we have good quality, so we have performances in us as we've shown that already.

"There's moments and personality moments in the game when we need to be tougher. We have to have game management.

"If a game turns slightly, and it didn't even turn against us big time in the first half as it was just a feeling of them having more possession and being in the game, we're good enough to wrestle that back and move the ball better.

"That's something all of us can work on."

Chelsea will travel to Norwich in search of their first Premier League win in its next game. The Canaries bounced back from last week's 4-1 thumping against Liverpool with a 3-1 victory over Newcastle.
