10pm Chelsea transfer news LIVE: Lionel Messi tussle with Blues ‘in equation’, Spurs draw reaction


Frank Lampard believes Chelsea should be table-toppers this morning.

The third-placed Blues would have leapfrogged champions, Liverpool and leaders Tottenham if they had turned dominance of possession and chances into more than a 0-0 home draw with Spurs.

And boss Lampard said: “It kind of went as I sort of expected.

“I think we created enough to win the game. So we had good control.”

The Stamford Bridge legend also claimed Chelsea were “excellent” at stifling Tottenham’s “amazing” counter-attacking ability – “their threat of Harry Kane and Son particularly”,

Lampard added: “We didn’t really give them a sniff, [and] didn’t quite take our chances.” 

But on his return with Spurs, ex-Blues manager Jose Mourinho said: “You can tell us we didn’t have many chances and I agree, but how many did they have?”

Meanwhile, Inter Miami owner David Beckham is reportedly willing to offer Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud an eyewatering package to join the new MLS club.

Giroud, 34, is said to be Becks’ transfer priority, with a £4million apartment or a stunning mansion part of a possible offer.
