was 2-0 at the start, but the ball lost in stoppage time was pulled 3-3 by the opponent, and Chelsea once again lost the chance to get a full 3 points. Coach Lampard said disappointedly after the game that his team must do a better job defensively.
"You are leading by two goals and want to end the game. The start of this game must be the best at the same time of our season."
"But Southampton is a good team. They put pressure on us when they are off the ball, and they put pressure on us when they get a goal back."
"What I mean at halftime is that the goal should not change too much. In the second half, we never reached the level of the first half. We can do better. We need to defend more firmly. We made some personal mistakes and gave the opponent a chance. ."
Kepa made another mistake on his comeback. Lampard said: "He must be strong, he must deal with it. He will have the support of me and his teammates. It's a pity (the mistake was lost), but he also made some good saves. "
