'We always cause our own problems' - Frank Lampard still worried despite win

'We always cause our own problems' - Frank Lampard still worried about Chelsea despite win, Frank Lampard bemoan Chelsea woes

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is certainly not a happy man after seeing his side struggle in the last 10 minutes of the game against Hull City on Saturday.

Chelsea went ahead in the 6th minute through a deflected Michy Batshuayi shot and later double their lead through Fikayo Tomori.

The London side kept having chances upon chances during the game but couldn't just score another goal which led to an interesting final 15 minute of the game.

Hull City got a goal back in the 78th minute, and the trouble begins for Chelsea. However, they were able to hold on and book a spot in the next round.

Speaking with BT Sport after the game, Frank Lampard express his disappointment and claim he feels like a broken record.

'The good news is we are in the hat, the bad news is that it is a small example of our season,' he said

'We had the game in our grasp and we play in nice patterns to finish them. But when they don't come off you need to keep trying them. When we play well we are a good team but we don't finish the game. We caused our own problems.'

'It is a hard one. We work hard in front of goal and it is not coming off for us. It is going to define you. I feel like a broken record. We have the larger share of possession and shots on goal but not making those count.'

'There is more goals to be had and control of the game. You can't bemoan your luck, such as a deflection with the Hull goal. It is frustrating. We are making mistakes and allowing them to run two on two in the last few minutes.'

Frank Lampard also praises Michy Batshuayi who stepped up in the absence of Tammy Abraham.

'He gets his goal. I am pleased as a goal scorer and a striker, he wants to score goals and it helps his confidence. I am pleased,' Lampard said.

"I have said all season that we can’t just rely on Tammy. Tammy has been scoring regularly. He has given us a lot.'

'Of course, we want Michy firing and scoring goals like he did today and when he trains he needs to stay at that level because today we needed him.'

'I said yesterday, he trains as I want him to train and that’s not easy when you are not playing as much as you want to do but you have to go the extra mile to show that you deserve to play. When you get them opportunities then you have to, wherever they are, show it.'

'Today, I am happy with Michy. I am happy. Not because of just his goal. His goal was slightly fortunate but I like that. That’s how goal scorers should score those kind of goals but I just want him to keep delivering when he is training and when the opportunities come.'

'We are at that level of football which is quite demanding and everyone judges strikers on goals and I think Michy has that in him. So I want to see a bit more.'
