Lampard finds crumbs of comfort despite Chelsea’s European exit

Chelseas interim manager Frank Lampard found crumbs of comfort from his sides performance despite a crushing Champions League quarterfinal exit against Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Faced with overturning a 20 defeat in the Bernabeu last week, Chelsea suffered a similar fate as Rodrygos secondhalf double eased the 14times European champions into the semis.

It is now four defeats from four games for Lampard since returning in the wake of Graham Potters sacking and his side are marooned in 11th place in the Premier League.

Yet for nearly an hour on Tuesday they matched the reigning champions and had they possessed a functioning attack might have given themselves a chance at redemption.

Chelsea have managed only one goal in their last six games despite spending around 600 million pounds (746 million dollars) on new players in the two transfer windows.

This was since American Todd Boehlys consortium bought the club previously bankrolled by Roman Abramovich.

I think for 60 minutes the only thing missing was a goal, Lampard told reporters.

One goal or two goals changes the face of the game and at this level when youre not clinical you see what happens.

The end bit of scoring is crucial and something we need to address.
