Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was dismayed by his side’s terrible defending in their 3-1 defeat at Everton.

After two defensive lapses by Chelsea helped Everton take a two-goal lead, Mateo Kovacic pulled a goal back for the visitors and the home team were hanging on.

But a misplaced pass out from the back by keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga led to the third Everton goal, which sealed Chelsea’s third defeat in four league games.

Lampard said: “The first goal was something we were aware of: Richarlison in the air in the box. Then the other two are just really poor defending from us.

“We were looking like we were getting back in the game at 2-1 and it’s ridiculous the goal we away.”
