The Blues took on the Premier League champions at Stamford Bridge and it was a difficult afternoon at times for them.

The visitors had the majority of possession in the first half of the game, but Timo Werner looked lively.

However, things changed when Andreas Christensen was sent off on the stroke of half-time following a VAR review having taken down Sadio Mane.

It didn’t take long for Chelsea to go behind, with Mane netting with a header.

A Kepa howler just a few minutes later gifted Mane a second.

Things got even worse for the Blues when Jorginho missed a penalty after Timo Werner was taken down in the box.

Lampard done

The Chelsea boss is done for now.

Barnsley game, do you play Kepa?

Willy Caballero is going to play, that was always going to happen prior to today. We just have to keep working. Nobody tries to make mistakes in football.

Mendy deal done and no Rudiger?

I haven’t had anything on the Mendy deal. On Rudiger, we have five centre-backs in the squad, I can’t have three centre-backs in the squad.

Tomori did really well and he hasn’t played for a while. I hope he feels the trust in him. I have got confidence in him.

There will be times against a team like Liverpool you have to be solid, we have had little time on the training pitch. We will get better and better.19:03OLIVER HARBORD

Unfair to make judgements where you are?

I don’t think you can make judgements which are tight for half a game. I was pleased with the work a spirit. There is a lot for us.

What can you take from the performance?

We negated a lot of their threats in the first half. I expected us to be competitive. We were solid in the first half. We had a few threats.

The Kepa situation, it’s a clear mistake which has cost us. We have to keep working, he has to keep working as well.18:59OLIVER HARBORD

Lampard to Sky Sports

“I am disappointed losing 2-0, but I am happier today than many times at Brighton. We are in pre-season still. I saw spirit, desire to defend by many of our players. The players have to take heart.

“We have to have time, every team who has done well in the modern game has that. Now is a new start. It will take time.

“We have to try to give Kepa confidence, goalkeepers rely on that. It’s a clear mistake, he has admitted that.”
