‘Fair play, they’ve won the league, but don’t get too arrogant’: Chelsea boss Frank Lampard saves Liverpool coaching staff for their behavior after his squad falls at Anfield
Frank Lampard was left behind from the party of Liverpool players and staff after beating Chelsea 5-3 in their penultimate Premier League game of the season.
Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Giorginio Wijnaldum set off the hosts before Olivier Giroud hit back, then Roberto Firmino re-took the lead and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sealed the victory after Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic threatened a comeback.
The champions and their backroom staff had left Lampard annoyed with their behavior on the bench during the match, and in the aftermath of the match, Sadio Mane is seen embracing the boss in an Instagram Live video.

The Chelsea boss was critical of the behavior of part of Liverpool’s backroom
Lampard told Sky Sports after the game: “I have no problem with Jurgen Klopp, he led this team and it is fantastic.
Part of the bank, it’s a fine line between when you win and they win the league, fair play for Liverpool Football Club, but don’t get too arrogant with it either.
In match play you get emotional and that’s it. ‘

Lampard’s Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League table with one more game of the season.
They are tied on points with third placed Manchester United and one point ahead of Leicester in fifth.
They should most likely avoid defeat to Wolves on the last day – with Manchester United and Leicester playing against each other – to seal Champions League football.
