Chelsea have conceded most Prem goals in last 10 minutes of matches – proving boss Lampard right

CHELSEA have conceded the most Premier League goals in final ten minutes of matches this season - proving boss Frank Lampard right.

The Blues threw away two leads in their clash with ten-man Arsenal on Tuesday night, as Hector Bellerin scored a late equaliser at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard was left fuming at his defence, claiming Chelsea should be well up the table - if not for their defensive lapses this term.

And the stats suggest he has a point, with the Blues conceding a Premier League-high TEN goals in the final ten minutes of matches this season.

That tally is level with Aston Villa, but two ahead of the chasing pack - Everton, Norwich and Watford have all conceded eight late striker.

Manchester United and neighbours City have both shipped seven late on in matches, along with Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Arsenal have allowed five late goals to fly in on their watch, with North London rivals Tottenham on four.

Rampant league-leaders Liverpool have conceded three late goals - with Leicester (2) and Sheffield United (1) the best in the division in terms of keeping it tight late on.

After watching side throw away another two points, Chelsea Lampard raged: “We’re in fourth position.

"That’s seen as pretty good but there should be at least another ten points on the board.

“When you go 2-1 up with five minutes to go you have to get the basics right. We gifted them their first goal and the second goal was also soft.

“For a right-back to be able to cut inside and roll it into the far corner is too soft. We have to be honest about that.

“It’s the same old story of creating a lot of chances and not taking them and we have to take a look at ourselves for that.

“Their first goal came because N’Golo Kante slipped over but that wasn’t the error that cost us.

"It came on the edge of our own area because people ran forwards when they should have been running back.”
