Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is usually calm and composed sometimes even giving a smile on intriguing  questions asked during press conference. However, there was a visible anger and disappointment when his team let a late goal in again to draw 2-2 with Arsenal.

Frank Lampard said “I am disappointed given the situation of the game. We completely deserved to go 1-0 up. For a little bit after that we were getting used to them with 10 men. But we created enough chances in the second half, it was just the same old story, we couldn’t take them. In football basic errors can cost you points. I’m not a massive believer in looking at the age. Do we have to have a better shot conversion, yes. I have spoken about that a lot. You can’t say we will definitely sign a striker this month but we are looking because there is a fine line in football. If you don’t score enough goals then you won’t win enough games. It’s a tough run coming up. It’s frustrating because you can’t say we played terribly. That’s just as important though. We have to get that right. I am pleased to be fourth but we should have a lot more points with the way we have been playing. When gameday comes you have to have the killer instinct. We’ve not got that at the moment. We might be a bit young and a bit of transition about us but we have to have that quality. It’s nothing on the crowd, that’s about us.”

The only positive point for Frank Lampard after the draw is a point gained is still a profit and increase in lead over other teams below them. This season other than Manchester Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City until recently, all the teams have looked as contender for champions league 4th spot. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea currently have a 6 point lead above others with an extra game played.

Frank Lampard admits he is out to silence doubters like Roy Keane by making a success of his Chelsea tenure. Keane sarcastically claimed Lampard has “all the answers for Chelsea” in a typically-pugnacious Sky Sports panel discussion with Jamie Carragher on Sunday. The former Manchester United captain questioned Lampard’s progress at Chelsea while defending Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s situation at Old Trafford, in the wake of Liverpool’s commanding 2-0 win over the Red Devils.
