And after the game, Lampard gave an angry response to the goalkeeper who allowed Jurgen Klopp's men to extend their lead in the game at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Lampard said: “[It was a] big mistake.

“Clear mistake and when you reflect on the half without the mistake and the penalty we draw the game 1-1.

“I’m actually happier in many ways [with the performance] than I was after Brighton on Monday.”

The Blues boss added: “It is a clear mistake that cost us, then we have a penalty that we could score.

“He has to keep working, he has support around him.”

Kepa was also caught in no man's land when Andreas Christensen delivered a rugby-like tackle on Mane and was sent off after a second look at VAR.
