Frank Lampard has claimed Chelsea must improve their mindset if they want to keep their top four spot.
The Blues dropped more points after a 2-2 draw at Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon, losing another lead.
The visitors were indebted to a Marcos Alonso brace, with Jefferson Lerma and Josh King almost clinching another win for the Cherries over the Blues.
Chelsea had the chance to open the gap over the chasing pack in the Premier League’s top four race, and make ground on Leicester City who lost to Norwich City on Friday night.

However, the Blues conceded two goals in quick succession for the second game in a row, and Lampard believes the Blues must change their mentality to get consitency.
“Mindset, yeah. Mindset,” Lampard said. “Every game is different but you have to have the mindset within the group on the pitch because those things aren’t… we spoke at half-time for instance about may happen and what they may do and then you rely on the players on the pitch.
Together they have to solve problems, so yeah it has been an issue.
“It’s always collective. As a group we can’t be happy with it. Young players, or experienced players can’t be happy with those moments when you concede like that or if you concede.
“At the other end of the scale if we are clinical with our chances those moments aren’t there so much, I truly believe that.
“When you look at our games and analyse them properly, without the result, and everyone analyses the result, I get that, but when you analyse the detail of the game, leaving games 1-0 or 0-0 always gives the other team a chance.”
