Why Frank Lampard Got It Wrong For Chelsea’s Defeat To Liverpool – Gary Neville

-

Gary Neville believes Frank Lampard’s tactics against Liverpool were an admission that Chelsea is ‘not good enough’.

 

Recall that the Blues were defeated 2-0 by the reigning champions, Andreas Christensen’s red card on the stroke of half-time changing the game.

Up to that point, Chelsea had gone toe-to-toe with the Reds, making for a tight contest, but they did so by changing their style which, Man United legend turned pundit Neville believes is nothing but an admission from Lampard that his men aren’t good enough.

“The word I would describe Liverpool as is superior today,” he said on his podcast. “I felt that the mentality of the Liverpool performance was better.

“It felt like Chelsea had to change the way they play and their principles to compete.

“When you change the way you play it’s an acceptance that you are not good enough. You are telling your players.

“Sometimes players buy into it but if it goes wrong, it can damage them a little bit.

“I’m not saying Frank was wrong, he was trying to do it a different way. They were really passive and it’s a performance that wouldn’t have been allowed in a stadium full of fans.”

Speaking specifically about Lampard, Neville added: “Frank has certainly got a harder job this year. It’s a dream scenario having that much money pumped into the club but the disruption with the pre-season and the impact of coronavirus, it makes it tough.

“He has got four players missing. There are four or five players who will come into that starting eleven and it’ll make a big difference because the bugs of last season are still there.”
