    SMS Message: Still backing Lampard. Every game Chelsea show real moments of quality but just can't keep it up across the 90 at the moment. Keep our heads up and keep going. We have the players this season to be more clinical, just need time for it to click. #TrustInTheProcess from Will, Chelmsford
    Will, Chelmsford
    SMS Message: Lampard is a Chelsea legend and always will be, but at the moment although it's early days this season the team does not look like improving unless he buys a domineering centre half and he will be judged on results and performances, both need to improve drastically. from Keith, London

  4. Off the mark

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)


    Timo Werner

    Only Robert Lewandowski (56), Ciro Immobile and Cristiano Ronaldo (40 each) have score more goals among players in Europe’s top five leagues in all competitions since August 2019 than Timo Werner (35).

  5. Post update

    Rudiger and Alli, both toast at their respective clubs do we think?

  6. 'We need to be more positive'

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)


    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard: "Anything can happen on penalties, you want to stay in these competitions of course but there's lots to like. We dominated the first half but the game changed, I'm happy with bits.

    "They went long in the second half, missed our press out, a clear change in tactics from them and we need to improve on that. We can react better. If we get the second goal when on top and be more positive - that will come.

    "We looked tired at the end which was understandable given where we are at. Timo Werner had some cramping at the end so he didn't take a penalty."

    Is Antonio Rudiger on his way out? "No. It's not at that point."

    Jamie Jennrich: Lampard is still finding our best 11 don’t forget we still have Pulisic and Zyiech to come back, give him time to play them, once they are back we will be a completely different proposition with more intensity going forward

    Steven Blake: Absolutely ridiculous people saying Lampard is out of his depth. I have complete trust in him and any other Chelsea fans thinking otherwise can jog on

    SMS Message: Chelsea have no plan B. It's the same old boring keep ball going sideways or backwards. It started with the thumping last year at Man Utd. Supported them over 50 years and bored stiff watching them. from Bill London

    SMS Message: What experience has Frank as a coach? Very little indeed a big risk putting him in charge as we are seeing now from Paul
  11. 'Nature calls!'

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham defender Eric Dier: "I'm so happy, I'm proud of how we played apart from the first 15 minutes. We showed them too much respect but then we were fantastic.

    "After playing on Sunday it wasn't easy, maybe that's the reason I had to run off but we got through it! All of the staff and the players put the effort in.

    "Jose wasn't happy but there was nothing I could do about it, nature was calling. I heard there was a chance while I was off the pitch but thankfully they didn't score."

  12. Post update

    I think he meant that as a compliment...

  13. 'Eric Dier is not normal'

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho on Sky Sports: "We were ready to fight, I told you. I told the players before the penalties that they were magnificent in the second half, we made Chelsea look ordinary. The team waited for the right moment.

    "I have to think about three games at the same time but the players only thought about this game, they were phenomenal. Phenomenal.

    "We tried to organise a team with the playes we had available, What happened to Eric Dier is not normal, I have to praise him in a special way. It should be forbidden for a player to play two games in 48 hours at this level [after he played against Newcastle]. What he did is not human to do.

    "He had to go [when he ran off] - he had no chance. Maybe it is a normal thing when you are completely dehydrated which is the case, I had to put pressure on him to get back but he is a great example for everybody. If the authoroties don't care about players, I care.

    "On the penalties I have a negative record but I had the feeling that everything was going well."

    SMS Message: Lampard will be out by Christmas. He clearly can't motivate this team and we actually look worse then last season despite all the money spent. We have lost to a Spurs team who didn't even look interested in playing this match. from Keith, London

  15. Post update

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)

    The defending from Emerson for the equaliser is really, really poor...

  16. 'It means a lot to us'

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham forward Erik Lamela on Sky Sports: "We are very happy to win, it means a lot for us.

    "The first half was difficult, they managed the ball and we tried to press but in the second half we played like we wanted to. With penalties sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

    "Everyone shot very well, this team really wanted to win."

  17. Post update

    is the honeymoon over? No, ha, we've got a lovely second week to come.

    But seriously, there is work to be done.

    Lee: I love Frank, but he is tactically clueless. Just what does he do on the training pitch each day?

    Chris Lord: 2 defenders out of 5 to be spot kick takers, fairplay they scored, but Werner! You pay how much doesn’t put himself up for a penalty after putting it in the net?

    James G: Chelsea’s patience with Lampard will be getting shorter! Every game I watch we are so laboured in possession, so lacking in urgency. Then he doesn’t have Werner take a penalty? Just bizarre. It’s like he doesn’t want us to win. No ruthlessness

    SMS Message: If Lampard would have played a midfielder rather than Werner out wide Spurs' equaliser may have been prevented. His insistence on playing players out of position will be his downfall #lampard out from Michael
    SMS Message: Shame that had to end. That was, until Mount missed, an exhibition of penalty taking. from Tattz in Harborne

    Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea (5-4 on pens)

    Chelsea end the game on 63% of possession but Tottenham actually ended up having more shots on goal. Chelsea were very flat in the second half.
