FRANK LAMPARD berated his dozing defenders as Roberto Firmino scored a free header unmarked to seal Liverpool’s win at Stamford Bridge.
Firmino put Liverpool two goals up in West London after Trent Alexander-Aronold’s wonder strike put the Reds in the lead.
A short free-kick on the half hour mark allowed Robertson to whip in a cross which was met by the Brazilian.
However, the striker ghosted in between Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso to finish the free header.
Speaking after a second consecutive home defeat, manager Lampard told Sky Sports: “We didn’t deserve to lose possibly could won.
“The free kick is a ridiculous goal fair play to that, the cross Firmino shouldn’t have a free header, obviously.
“We work on how we can defend, we know they have threats.
“But it’s not as if it’s Virgil van Dijk coming in and jumping on the run, it’s Roberto Firmino and is actually a free header.
“We have to mark better in the area.
“When the ball comes in your area you can’t have people stroll in and head it, that’s the message of the day.”
Liverpool’s two goals were sandwiched in between a disallowed Cesar Azpilicueta leveller – as Mason Mount was fractionally offside in the build up.
Despite a solo goal from N’Golo Kante and a spirited fightback, the Blues could not force home an equaliser.
Lampard insists his side deserved at least a point, and hopes to be on the right side of a VAR call in the future.
He said: “Performance wise we were the better team.
“Sometimes it’s character, pure spirit, that’s why the fans clapped the team.
“It is what it is I like to think we’ll get (a VAR call) in our favour.
“We do have to get on with it, it’s a sad thing for the moment and the celebrations but if you want the right decision you have to go with it.
“Little moments like that change the face of the game.”
