Lampard praises Chelsea's 'professional performance' in win over Newcastle

Lampard acknowledged that the whole game didn't go Chelsea's way.

The manager explained he was pleased with Chelsea's control in the early stages of the game.

He also said that Chelsea played dangerously on the counter in the second half.

"We can’t have it all our own way, but we put the game away with a professional performance," Lampard told BT Sport after the game.

"First 20 minutes we were great, we had control and all the possession.

"They came out in the second half and I always felt that the real danger from us would be on the counter.

"You saw that with Timo (Werner) on the break and then setting up Tammy (Abraham's) goal.

"It’s very easy to play the safe pass but we had to keep making the runs and efforts to get in there."

Chelsea beat Newcastle 2-0 thanks to an own-goal from Federico Fernandez and Tammy Abraham's strike.
