Chelsea boss Lampard: How can you claim we have the best squad in the league?!

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard hopes title talk is now dampened after defeat at Everton.

Lampard said he has been left bewildered by the hype surrounding Chelsea as title contenders as their 17-game unbeaten run ended at Everton on Saturday night.

He said, "I keep reading how we had the strongest squad in the league. I don't understand it.

"Teams around us have won titles and have strikers who score 30 goals every year, players who have won the Champions League.

"We have some players who have won titles but also have some who are new to the Premier League and are young. We are a work in progress and nights like tonight can happen.

"I don't like them but they can happen."
