Chelsea boss Frank Lampard explains what went wrong vs Man City

The defeat against Pep Guardiola's side was a 'reality check' for the Blues.

"Mistakes, individual mistakes, not getting close enough. They punished us," Frank Lampard told BBC after Chelsea's 3-1 defeat against Man City.

"If you want to reach the top level which City have been for a few years now you have to accept the pressures. The second half we competed but at 3-0, the game was pretty much done.

"I am not trying to talk up the last 20 minutes of the game because at 3-0 the vitals of the game have changed but I was still looking for a reaction.

"I am not putting ourselves down. I am the man to have the reality check and there will be work and at times pain. Today was painful in the first half in football terms because their level of play shows where we need to aspire to. In the second half, I saw a reaction but the work needs to be done."

After just one won in the last 6 Premier League games, Chelsea have slipped down to the 8th place in the standings - less than a month after briefly going top after a win over Leeds on December 5.
