Chelsea suffered a second successive defeat under interim boss Lampard after finishing with 10 men following Ben Chilwell’s straight red card for a foul on Rodrygo in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

It means the Blues must score at least twice at Stamford Bridge in next Tuesday’s return leg.

After returning to take charge of Chelsea until the end of the season last week, Lampard expressed that his team is currently experiencing a lack of confidence, following their recent performances.

Nevertheless, Lampard is optimistic that his players can bounce back and reverse the situation when they play Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge.
When questioned about Chelsea’s recent struggles to score goals, Lampard responded:


“Sometimes it is confidence, whether that is an individual thing or team confidence.
“If you keep working, something can change. Take Mason Mount’s chance at the end, it might go in and the tie feels completely different.
“The door is open.

It’s up to us to kick it open.
“There’s a bit of a lack of belief.

The players don’t know how good they are. There was some good in there. Next week will be a big fight.


“There are some details and mindset stuff, we have to be more positive. If we do that… I’ve been involved in those nights at Stamford Bridge.”
