There Are Lessons To Be Learned After Chelsea’s 3-3
Draw With West Brom Say’s Lampard
Frank Lampard ordered Chelsea to eliminate errors when his team scored the tying goal in the 93rd minute to complete a surprising comeback after trailing West Brom 3-0 at The Hawthorns.
The Baggies appeared to be racing towards a first victory since returning to the Premier League after mistakes allowed Callum Robinson, twice, and Kyle Bartley to score before halftime.
But goals from local players Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham, the third in injury time, salvaged a point for the great Blues.
It was a dramatic end to an eventful game and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, who has spent more than £ 200 million to strengthen his team this summer, said he had mixed emotions after the match.
Lampard looked furious slumped in his seat in the dugout after sending his players early for the second half.
There was relief at the end, but the Chelsea manager knows his team must improve if they want to fight for the honors this season.
“It’s a great lesson for us,” Lampard said after Saturday’s game. It’s two points lost at the end of the day, and that’s not disrespectful to West Brom.
“They were mistakes, clear mistakes, what cost us. You can have as many meetings as you want but with those mistakes you give yourself a mountain to climb.
“There are many things we can continue to improve on.”
