On what’s caused back-to-back defeats, he said: “Performance.
“Performance is what gives you results, and we had a long run of good performances but maybe the lads think we’re playing well, and when you think you’re playing well this is what happens.”
That suggests Lampard thinks complacency could be behind Chelsea’s struggles.
And he said of his players: “Maybe it’s for the players to think about the game while they’re resting.
“Think about tonight, think about Everton. This is the Premier League and if you don’t perform, you lose games.”
Lampard feels Chelsea were naive in trying to win the game rather than settling for a point.
