The six goals scored between Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion on Saturday is a classic story. A team dug a hole in the first half, reached three goals, just came up with the necessary fighting and spirit Come dig a hole.
After reflection after the game, Lampard has every reason to be disappointed and happy with today’s performance.
“I am in a mixed mood. I am very happy to see a team counterattack and score three goals, but I am back to the starting point and am not satisfied with the three goals we admitted. After three goals, we admitted. Three goals.”;
“The idea is that West Brom will wait for the game before the start of the game, but when such a moment happens on the court, you may be punished. We were punished, which made us climb the Three Balls Hill. The boys showed Very strong ability to overcome, but at the same time, when organizing a team, this is not the position you want, which makes it difficult for you, and you gave them the three goals we gave them.”
Looking at the game as objectively as possible from a statistical point of view, the game script seems to be more biased towards Chelsea at halftime-except for an important indicator, the goal is to admit.
If Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham switch their chances in the first half, the narrative of this game will be very different. At least, Chelsea’s score line is more suitable for our 1.09 xG.
Three shots from three serve clearly show that the god of football did not support … [check notes] … Salmon and blue faux stripes suit. Thank you, Nike. West Brom’s xG is 0.46, and their three goals are ahead of their opponents.
Each of the three goals Chelsea admitted in the first half was a personal error from defensive rebounds, including those of Thiago Silva. Lampard, as we know after comments on former starting goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, was never the one who publicly dropped his players on the bus.
“I didn’t blame the players, I told the fact that it was obviously wrong that led to the goal. It is always difficult in a game like this. This is not a tactical moment, but the position change we talked about earlier.”
“It’s hard to point this out. They are what they are today. The team has an element, not just talking about the goals we recognize, but also a process because we don’t have much working time. We haven’t entered the preseason, no New players are accounted for, and there is no new idea for them to keep moving forward. I’m not sure this is directly related to the mistake of today’s goal. Take the fixture as an example, it’s obvious. I don’t think this is whether you are a novice or a novice to the club. You are the designated person, you must move and follow them, and you must make it difficult for them to score. That is not new. Part of it is just the foundation.”
But Lampard’s words after the game were as specific and negative as he once expressed. On the surface, it’s hard not to blame him for the defensive mistakes that led to West Brom’s goal.
In the past, he has said that there is a lack of preseason games, and his team is currently changing as players arrive, recover and do not have time for the right chemistry. Moreover, this particular argument alone is strong enough to cushion Lampard now until his team stabilizes.
However, simple mistakes directly lead to the achievement of the goal. This season has happened too often, we only have four games!
Alonso’s header from West Brom’s Matthews Pereira happened. Thiago Silva’s unexpectedly poor starter scored West Brom’s Callum Robinson. This happened in the previous game against Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Lampard has discussed a lot of mentality in previous press circles, and this particular attribute is clearly still in progress.
The silver lining is a comeback in the second half of the year. The team began to operate and showed great mental focus to always be committed to the defensive end of the game, ensuring that we still have a chance to move forward while scoring goals.
“That’s why we must continue to work hard. If they are clear, focused or focused errors, they must humbly accept clear errors. The players must get better. We are increasing the team’s competition, we have done Arrived.
“There is always a clinical view in football that if you make mistakes, then you will have the opportunity to correct them. If you don’t, then your chances will be less. That is the cruel nature of football. We hope from The state started to improve last year, so there is a lot of work to be done. I will repeat this message, not only for myself, but also under the closed door. This is what is needed, repeat the improvement.”

Rome was not built in a day. This is an expression of fatigue, but the core of the message is true. Lampard and Chelsea need to continue their efforts. We have shown that there are still many areas to improve at the beginning of the season.
Go forward and up to reach the optimists among us.
