Chelsea lost 1-0 to Newcastle at the death today, a hammer blow after a game they dominated.
Frank Lampard was clearly dejected in the post match interview, and he explained why he thought Newcastle were able to hold out, and then strike us from nowhere.
He mentioned the commitment and the discipline of their defender, and specifically noted the difficulty of breaking down a team that sits so many men deep.

🗣”You won’t always create clear cut chances against Newcastle because they have so many defenders, so many bodies around their 6-yard box”
