Frank Lampard and his unimpressive start to the season
Frank Lampard did not have a fairytale beginning to the season which he would have wanted. Having played three matches Chlesea are now 9th on the table with 4 points. Lampard’s men began their season with an away win over Brighton. In their first home game of the season Chlesea lost to the defending Champions Liverpool .
Everyone expected Chelsea to bounce back stronger against West Brom after their defeat to Liverpool. However West Brom further worsened Lamaprd’s situation by almost defeating Chelsea. Tammy Abraham’s dramatic stoppage-time equalizer saved Chelsea boss Lampard from suffering a humiliating defeat.
Frank Lampard lashes out at Marcos Alonso
In their game against West Brom Marcos Alonso was booked in the eighth minute. Subsequently he was subbed off at half-time. Alonso was substituted at half time for Azpilicueta. After being subbed he headed to the team bus without permission rather staying in the bench for the second half.
According to the reports of ‘The Athletic’, Franky lashed out at Marcos Alonso in front of the entire squad. Some even suggest that this might be the last time Alonso has played for Chelsea after the dressing room incident.
Lampard also took a dig at Alonso in the post match press conference. Speaking about the game Frank said, “The first one Marcos heads it into the middle of the pitch for them was a transition. Marcos loses his man for the third goal from the corner, a clear mistake. You can do as many meetings as you want, if you are going to make those mistakes you give yourself a mountain to climb.”
