Frank Lampard Chelsea Sheffield United

Frank Lampard says there should be “no chance” Chelsea don’t win the match after being two goals up against Sheffield United.

The Blades stunned Chelsea by snatching an 89th-minute equaliser at Stamford Bridge with Callum Robinson’s strike and a Kurt Zouma own-goal cancelling out Tammy Abraham’s first-half brace.

And Lampard was surprised his side drew 2-2 after being in control at the break.

“It was under control, it is our fault for gifting them a goal in the first minute of the second half,” Lampard told BBC Sport. “It’s a similar story already.

“The game should have been comfortable and we have dropped two points. We want to win games, the emergence of youth is one thing but winning games is another. When you are 2-0 up at half-time you should win the game.

“We had more than enough on the pitch to win that game from 2-0 up. There is no chance that that game should swing like that. We gave them the possibility to hurt us.

“Tammy Abraham is doing well, his all-round game was great and he needs to continue.”
