Chelsea’s form at home this season has been very poor, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was disappointed to have lost another game and yet at home.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, Lampard said: “I don’t like losing games, I don’t like the way we’re losing games. Particularly at home we’re losing games where we’ve had a big share of possession, big chances, lots of shots, and we’re not finishing them.

“It’s a reality that’s getting clearer all the time. We’re not getting enough goals from striker areas, we’re not getting enough goals from wide areas. Not many teams can keep clean sheets week in, week out. You have to score goals to give you a feeling of superiority in the game.

“We make a lot of chances, as many as any team in the league barring Liverpool, and we’re not finishing them.”

Lampard also believes that Chelsea were the better side against United but blames the team’s inability to convert chances as the reason for the defeat.

He went on: “We start a lot of games very well. I can hardly ever look at the team and go ‘we started slow, bit sloppy today’. But if you don’t score you leave teams in the game.

“Today we had a couple of silly moments in terms of allowing them headers in our box, particularly the set-piece.

“Manchester United are a fantastic counter-attacking team but they didn’t give us loads of problems on the counter-attack, couple of small ones you’d expect, but you give them two headers. That’s something we can’t do.”
