- Frank Lampard has urged his Chelsea players to push Man United's defeat behind them
- The Blues were humbled 4-0 at Old Trafford last weekend in Lampard's first competitive game in charge of the club
- The Stamford Bridge side face Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup tie tomorrow
Chelsea were hammered 4-0 at Old Trafford by Manchester in their Premier League opening fixture last weekend.
A brace from Marcus Rashford, while Anthony Martial and Daniel James scored a goal each to hand the Red Devils a flying start.
However, the Blues new handler Frank Lampard has taken it upon himself to motivate his players to push the defeat behind them as they face another tricky clash on Wednesday.
The Europa League champions battle fellow EPL side Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup, and the Stamford Bridge outfit will be hoping they can bounce back to winning ways in the meeting.
It has now emerged Lampard asked his deflated players to keep their heads high regarding their performance as they settle into the new campaign.
Asked if his wards needed to keep some perspective about the scoreline, Lampard told Sky Sports: "Yeah for sure. That’s the first thing I said [to them]."

"We have to be grown up about it because it doesn’t feel nice. We’re Chelsea we don’t want to come here and lose 4-0, we don’t want to come anywhere and lose 4-0," he added.
The Stamford Bridge outfit will now be seeking to make amends when they face Champions League winners Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night, August 14.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Jose Mourinho has ruled out chances of Man United and Chelsea lifting the Premier League title, just days into the new season.
The Portuguese tactician sensationally claimed Manchester City's substitutes would more likely lift the title compared to United and the Blues.
