Frank Lampard press conference live: Chelsea boss on West Brom comeback, Thiago Silva, Abraham

Hello. Welcome to live coverage of Frank Lampard’s post-match press conference from The Hawthorns where Chelsea have come back from three goals down to draw with West Bromwich Albion in a game from which both sides will be disappointed.

The visitors endured a nightmare first half as Marcos Alonso and Thiago Silva committed dreadful errors, both punished by Callum Robinson, before they allowed Kyle Bartley to roam unmarked at the back post to score from a corner to make it 3-0.

A fine Mason Mount goal within ten minutes of the restart provided some hope and a well-worked move ending with substitute Callum Hudson-Odoi finding the net made it 3-2 with a quarter of the game still to play.

Chelsea ended the game with four forwards, two No10s and just one centre back on the pitch as they chased an equaliser and it finally arrived in the 94th minute as Tammy Abraham tapped in after Albion keeper Sam Johnstone saw Mount’s initial attempt late.

All the head coach’s reaction – from his thoughts on the shocking opening 45 to a second period full of fight -will be right below when he arrives shortly.
