Bournemouth 2-2 Chelsea – Frank Lampard FULL Post Match Press Conference – Premier League- SUBTITLES


Mixed emotions after that? Possibly, because you could be happy with
the reaction and that we score. Over the whole game I think we should win it. Started slow, but then when we got to grips
that all we had to do was play the simple pass and move it quickly and they would struggle
with our wing-backs and struggle to get to the centre-halves and we could move it. But we kept coming away from it, the passes
were pretty clear. But generally we controlled the game in the first-half. Then we can go 2-0 up in the second-half early
on, don’t take that. And from the set-piece, I think you’ve got to credit the jump sometimes,
it was a great leap from him. But our reaction from that wasn’t tough enough,
wasn’t instant enough. And the second goal I didn’t like at all, very poor individually. Two quick goals again, like Tuesday. The reasons
for that? At half-time we were very aware what could
happen. Eddie Howe is a fantastic manager. They were always going to come out with more
aggression in the way they press and get after us because we were very comfortable. So there was nothing new to the players, to
have a bit of time to suffer or have to defend our box. So it’s frustrating when you say that a lot
at half-time, and that still happens in the second-half.” Same again that not converting half-chances? Yeah, it’s costing us in games. Everyone wants
to point to the defence, but we work all week on our defence. It’s hard to create actual situations like
someone out-jumping your man or someone diving in and getting done when they shouldn’t do
as a centre-back. But at the same time if you’re going to create
something like 23 chances and balls slashing across the face, those are the chances that
you need to stick away. That’s what creates the nervousness. At 1-0,
Bournemouth are in that game, at 2-0 I think we start to control and finish the game off. I sit here a lot and say that, it’s a clear
part of our season. We’ve created a lot again, but we need to stick the ball in the back
of the net. I’m very happy for Marcos Alonso but when
I think that my left-back is the one scoring the two goals and he scored our last goal
in the league as well, and you’re creating that many chances in between, you have to
question why we’re not finishing them. Tammy Abraham, anything more on his return? He went to Barcelona, to have a look at his
ankle for some more advice on it. I’ve got no update for you. I’m hoping it’s not a long-term injury but
I can’t tell you if he’ll be ready for Tuesday or Saturday. You must be pleased with the way Marcos has
come back into the side against Spurs and here? Really pleased with Marcos. He has always
at that since he has been at Chelsea, a great record of scoring goals. A great technique
for the first one and great anticipation for the second one. He nearly gets a third, he
is in the box there at the end. I am really pleased with that and I can’t
ask for any more than when a player doesn’t play always regularly, that they are professional
and train well. They keep their head down and play well, perform like that. I think
he is a great example to the younger players on how he has handled that. Do you feel regret in leaving him out more? No. It is an easy with hindsight question.
Marcos played some games early in the season. We have had the emergence of Reece James,
who has been very, very good for us this season and I have to find a balance. Sometimes it
affects the system of the play. There are different reasons why I have to pick the team.
So, no. Not regrets. I am always trying to get the best out of each game. I am pleased
with how Alonso has come back in. Are the players dealing well with the pressure? I don’t think it’s the pressure. I think
it is in game. I don’t see that there is a team who is struggling with pressure. We
are young, yes. But that is one thing where you can probably give them a bit of bye if
you felt that the pressure is big. But we also have some people in that dressing room
who have been in and around it before. I just think that this Premier League is tough. We
are fighting for fourth. There are teams who are pushing the same as us. We are really
striving for a run of form which means, win, win, win. Where we haven’t been for a while,
so it is really where we have to dig in at the moment and find wins. When you have 73%
of possession and have 23 shots and don’t win the game, then there are question marks
in both boxes, without a doubt. That has been a constant for us. That is what we have to
get right. I don’t think it’s the pressure. I think it is being more clinical at both
ends. Does an advantage of the system mean that
Alonso and James can get forward? Yeah. It is a system which has worked well
for us quite a few times this season. I have Oli Giroud up front and it allows people to
get inside, nearer him. Second balls and link ups. It gives us stability, you up, with the
three centre-backs and when you move the ball well you can control games. We did manage
to control once we settled into the game and livened up. It does help in that way with
us. It is a system I like for that.
