Everton manager Frank Lampard has explained why his team defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Everton defeated Chelsea because of their players’ discipline and work ethic against Thomas Tuchel’s team, according to Lampard.

The former England international also stated that his players did not relax much against Chelsea and that his goalkeeper was outstanding against the visitors.

Lampard’s men took all three points against the Blues thanks to Richarlison’s only goal of the game.

Speaking during his post-match press conference, Lampard said: “It’s about making sure the players were disciplined today because when you play top-level players, they will punish you. We didn’t switch off much today and when we did, we had a brilliant goalkeeper to help us.”

He added, “My only worry before the game is that [the fans’ reaction could mean] we would run for the sake of it. You can’t do that against Chelsea, as they will just play through you. The discipline and work ethic was great. It stemmed from great support and the players delivered.”
