Frank Lampard Gives Reason for Back-to-Back Defeat
Following the back-to-back defeat Chelsea faced recently, manager Frank Lampard has come out to say players may be suffering from fatigue because they only just played a game on Sunday and they have to play again just barely four days after.
Frank Lampard boys took the lead in the first half of the game after Olivier Giroud opened the scoring in the first half of the game before Daniel Podence cancelled the scoring Wolves.
Things became worst Chelsea as Pedro Neto netted home a 95th-minute strike to give them a dramatic win at Molineux and stopped Frank Lampard and his troops from going top of the Premier League.
Neto was denied a late penalty for the hosts after referee Stuart Attwell reviewed his original decision on the pitch-side monitor and judged the Wolves forward was not fouled by James.
But the 20-year-old broke away in the 95th minute and fired a low strike into the far corner beyond Mendy to earn Wolves only their second win in six games.
It is a second successive defeat for Chelsea after they were beaten at Everton on Saturday, another game in which they could have gone top of the table. According to Frank Lampard speaking about his team, he said: “There could be some fatigue,” said Lampard, whose side have already played five games in December.
He also said: “I hate to say it after a defeat because it feels like an excuse but even in the first 60 minutes when we were the better team, we didn’t have a zip about us.” “We’ve travelled up to Everton, came back and then travelled to Wolves but everyone is in the same boat.”
“We have a couple of injuries in areas which means I can’t make too many changes so I understand that side of it.”
