Chelsea manager Frank Lampard admitted they were cautious of Tottenham Hotspur’s counter-attacking threats but that he was hoping for more from his attackers.
Many would argue that Chelsea should have taken a more offensive approach in the 0-0 draw against Tottenham on Sunday.
It was a home game and, in the second half, Jose Mourinho’s men looked like they were playing for a point.
However, Lampard argued that Spurs had the quality to hurt his team on the counter.
“The way Tottenham are playing at the moment, they’ve got players in real form who could cause you real problems” he told Sky Sports after the match (via Football Daily).
“So I want to get that side of game [defence] right and I’m happy with the clean-sheet.
“But in actual game play, we should win the game.”
The Chelsea manager also said that, on another day, his attacking players would have that extra quality they needed to score.
“We could have created more chances,” he added.
“Sometimes you rely on that little bit of magic from your front end players in those games or it’s going to be tight.
“[Werner’s] goal was offside, individual brilliance, one-on-ones, that didn’t quite come for us today.
“But I’m really pleased about that game.”
