Chelsea coach Frank Lampard attended the pre-match press conference against Sevilla. He said: "The team needs time to grow. I know the problem of defense."
"My own feeling is that we lack preparation. This exists for everyone, but we have to worry about ourselves."
"I'm not sure if I have been satisfied in the past. By that time, it may be the beginning of my downhill road."
"I can't talk about the need for work and improvement every day. Football has its own rules. Maybe this is a factor in the results we see. We don't have to worry too much about this. We must continue to work."
"This is a good platform for learning. We played the best match against Bayern Munich. This shows people the qualities that the players have. We were a young team last year, for the young people in the team. For the players, Bayern is a good learning object."
"We were affected a bit in the loss to Bayern, but we didn't play well in the first half of the first leg. In the second half, they scored consecutive goals and kept high pressure on us, which made it difficult for us to play. "
"When playing against opponents like Sevilla, attention, focus, and discipline are very important. Since there are no fans, I can't say what effect this will have. Goals change some things, and this may happen. It does have some impact."
"Gilmore's work is excellent and it will take three weeks to return. He is working with a physiotherapist and hopes to return to training as soon as possible. On the other hand, International Match Day is very good."
"I have been talking about the need to work hard, and there are many things that take time. We are working with a group of new players. When I discuss the issue of game management, of course it takes time."
"It takes time to work. This is a question that takes time."
"I know these data, I also know other data, such as the number of shots we have been the second-lowest. This helps narrow the scope of the problem.
"We were aware of these issues when we introduced players. We prepared the players when we were on the court. We hope to concede fewer goals. All teams think so."
"Aspilicueta should have some game time."
"We have the strength and ability to compete in all competitions. We have greatly changed the team lineup, but since 2012, I believe we can compete in all competitions."
"Our start to the Premier League this season is not as we expected, but the Champions League is a new challenge."
"If you want to compete in all competitions, then you need to repair the defense, both overall and personal."
"Sometimes, you rely on this line of defense and you need to score 4 goals. But sometimes, you only need 1 goal. You need to move forward steadily, so you can give offensive players more freedom.
"We saw Sevilla beat Wolves and Manchester United in the Europa League last season, so they have a competitive level. They like to control the game. When they lose possession of the ball, they will win it back as soon as possible."
"I knew this coach when I was in the national team. I think it will be a tough game. But we are Chelsea, we are at home and we must be prepared for the game."
"When I am in such a role, I will help them adapt as soon as possible, and I will try to help."
"In this pre-season preparation, we don't have much time. From my experience, I always try to welcome them and let them adapt as soon as possible."
"I try to get the players together and show the kind of stability we need."
"This is very important when you are very experienced. Everything was too new for the players last season. The experience against Bayern is the best result of last season in Europe."
"We have already seen where the best level we want to challenge is."
"When you are in a 2-0 lead, everything is under control. But in the second half, we got ourselves into trouble and didn't choose the right way."
"We conceded a goal and gave the opponent confidence to suppress us. The threat we gave was not enough."
"In the final stage of the game, we conceded because of set-pieces. And when we are on the court, we should choose a better decision."
"When you are in a 3-2 lead, you will not play football that you think is good, you will fall into a deep position, and then keep the gate closed until the end of the game.
