Lampard ‘learned a lot’ about Chelsea players

Frank Lampard said he “learned a lot” about his players during Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United.

The manager’s comments are bound to increase speculation that he will look to ship players out this summer.

Lampard said: “I learned a lot today. You tend to learn more in tough moments and tough games – and that’s for me to work with and deal with as we go forward.”

Chelsea’s defending was terrible at Bramall Lane, where the home side were two up by half-time.

All three of the Blades’ goals game after defensive lapses.

Lampard admitted: “We made mistakes that led to goals. Individual errors. And if you make mistakes like that you’re going to lose football matches.”
