Frank Lampard: 'Young squad makes no difference'

Blues fielded a young side against Sheffield United.
PA | 21d

Frank Lampard said his Chelsea side’s second successive capitulation at home is nothing to do with the youthful nature of his side.

A fortnight after squandering a first-half lead against Leicester, the Blues blew a 2-0 half-time advantage against Sheffield United to be held to a 2-2 draw.

Tammy Abraham’s first-half double had looked like giving Lampard a first home win in charge, but Callum Robinson’s effort less than a minute after the restart and Kurt Zouma’s 87th-minute own goal handed the Blades a deserved point.

Wilder said: “We had to play well here, we can’t give ourselves a mountain to climb, which we obviously did.

“To come roaring back as we did in the second half hopefully gives us an enormous amount of confidence and self-belief going forward.

“I don’t want us to stand off teams, we obviously understand the teams we are up against and the journey we have been on.

“Three years ago we were bottom of League One and now we are going toe-to-toe in the Premier League. It’s not a cup tie, we are here on merit.

“From a biased point of view, I believe we deserved something from our second-half performance.”
