Lampard sends warning to Chelsea defenders despite Crystal Palace win

Frank Lampard put Chelsea defenders on notice after Tuesday's 3-2 win over Crystal Palace.

The result made it five goals conceded in the Blues' last three Premier League matches.

"You can't feel secure in football matches if you keep giving goals away," Lampard told BBC Sport afterwards.

"When you go 3-1 up, if you can navigate the next five minutes, the game should be more comfortable for you.

"But, straight away, we switch off and make two or three mistakes in the build-up to a goal. Not good enough."
