Frank Lampard’s first home game in this Premier League season turned out unpleasant, as the team only managed a lackluster draw against Leicester, and stands were under chaos after a clash broke out during the match between several Chelsea supporters at Stamford Bridge.
The former Blues legend’s start of this season had been unpleasant, following a 4-0 thrash against Manchester United last Sunday. In addition to that, the defeat to Klopp’s Liverpool at the UEFA Super Cup final also had the Blues fans fuming.
Yesterday’s face off against Leicester City evolved into an ugly atmosphere as security personnel had to rush to the stands, after some male supporters were seen throwing punches at each other, to others’ annoyance. The reason behind the unexpected fight is still unknown.
The match ended 1-1, as Chelsea youngster Mason Mount’s early goal was equalized by the Foxes’ midfielder Wilfred Ndidi in the second half.
In the post match interview, Lampard expressed he wasn’t very happy with the team’s overall performance.
“Really good start, fantastic start. We could have been two or three up, quick and bright energy in the team. But after that we allowed Leicester back into the game, and then second half I wasn’t very happy.” the 41 year old spoke to Sky Sports.
We offered them too many chances to counter attack, we didn’t have enough calmness on the ball, and that allowed them right back into the game.” he added.
The Blues have gone down to 15th place in the table, as they still haven’t secured a win yet. They will travel to Carrow Road on Saturday to face Norwich City.
