Frank Lampard happier with 4-0 loss against Manchester United than draw against Leicester City

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he was happier with the 4-0 thumping by Manchester United than his first point in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City.

Lampard is still seeking for his first win as Chelsea manager as his side were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester. Chelsea took the lead with a strike from Mason Mount inside the opening 10 minutes but Brendan Rodgers side came back into the match, with a towering header from Wilfred Ndidi leveling the scores halfway through the second half to secure a point.

Speaking in a press conference after the Leicester draw, Lampard admitted that he was less happy with the stalemate, "It's a results business. It's strange because the performance against Manchester United overall made me happier than today even though it was a 4-0 result. We need both.

"I believe we have both in us because we have good quality, so we have performances in us as we've shown that already. There's moments and personality moments in the game when we need to be tougher. We have to have game management.

"If a game turns slightly, and it didn't even turn against us big time in the first half as it was just a feeling of them having more possession and being in the game, we're good enough to wrestle that back and move the ball better. That's something all of us can work on."
