Lampard speaks after Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Burnley, hails three players

Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard has described his side’s Premier League 3-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday at Stamford Bridge as one of their best performances at home this season.

Lampard also hailed Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and Tammy Abraham for their brilliant performances against Sean Dyche’s men.

Three goals from Jorginho, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi gave Lampard’s men all three points against the visitors.

“It was one of our best [performances] at home this season for sure – it had everything other than more goals,” Lampard was quoted by Sky Sports as saying after the match.

“Some of the football we played was great against a Burnley team who are notoriously difficult to play against when they want to be but we made it hard for them. We were positive with our play from the first minutes of the game.

“We scored two goals in the first half [against Burnley] and that changed the face of the game. We’ve been working on that a lot, working on arriving better at crosses and scoring from them – we scored from two of those today – and there’s more to come, but that was the big difference today.”

Lampard added: “For Callum to score in the six-yard box is more exciting for me than for him to score from 35 yards without a doubt, because it means he’s prepared to run the extra bit, to sprint in there and it’s not the only time he did it today.

“That was the real Callum Hudson-Odoi and what he can be and there is obviously more to come. I thought his goal was brilliant for him and if he can carry on doing that then we know the serious player we have there.

“Reece has got a great delivery of a cross and more than that, you give him the ball and he’s technically so good as well. He’s so young and this is just the start for him. He’s a big weapon at the minute that we have to use well, we have to anticipate those crosses because there’s a lot of juice on them. We have to be ready to get across people and make goals like we did with the Tammy one.”

“I hope Tammy’s upset tonight because he should have had two or three. That’s how a striker will be and I know Tammy is like that, but at the same time, he got his and he keeps getting in there with his energy. He was that all around striker and the next stage is being that little bit more clinical but I’m delighted with Tammy.”
