Frank Lampard says Chelsea are determined to improve their disappointing home form as they prepare to host Brighton this weekend.
Last weekend’s defeat to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge means Lampard is yet to win a home league fixture since returning to the club as manager this summer, a run the Chelsea boss is determined to end as they prepare to face Graham Potter’s side this Saturday.
Brighton have failed to win since the opening weekend of the new Premier League campaign but despite their opponents run of form, Lampard insists his side won’t underestimate the visitors as they bid to improve their disappointing record at home.
“The fact that we haven’t won at home in the league is something that we obviously we want to correct. If we want to be where we want to be we’re going to need home wins.
“We must respect Brighton hugely because they’re playing very well, playing some really good football – new manager, change of style, maybe not the points on the board that they deserve.
“So we can’t just because we haven’t had a home win expect it will come because we’re Chelsea and they’re Brighton – no we respect them and we’ll try and get our win.”
