(Image): Ridiculous xG map used to defend Lampard after more missed chances

You can’t fall back on stats all the time to defend yourself. Chelsea weren’t good enough today, and no numbers will change that.

But Frank Lampard complained about his team’s inefficiency in front of goal after the game, and his sentiments were backed up by the expected goals map of the game.

That’s nobody’s fault but ours of course. The error to allow them a 1 on 1 after our corner was dire
