Ben Chilwell says Frank Lampard was ‘more pleased’ in the dressing room when reflecting on Chelsea’s mixed performance against Aston Villa, despite his side dropping yet more points on Monday evening.

Villa winger Anwar El Ghazi scored his fifth goal in as many games shortly after half-time to cancel out Olivier Giroud’s 34th-minute header and the visitors held on to secure a point at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea moved up to sixth in the Premier League table with the result but it meant they have now won just one of their last six matches in all competitions.

Their 3-1 defeat at the Emirates was a particularly bitter pill to swallow – given Arsenal’s miserable form before the Boxing Day clash – and Lampard was understandably livid in the aftermath, branding his players ‘lazy’.

And while Lampard reportedly ‘lost it’ once again on Monday night, Chilwell insisted his manager was more upbeat than he was after the loss at Arsenal.

‘He is more pleased than he was the other day,’ the England left-back – who assisted Giroud’s opener – told Chelsea’s official website.

‘It is a draw at home and we want to be winning these games but the effort and the performance was a lot better in this game.

‘The mentality was the main thing we wanted from it, that was better.

‘I know it is disappointing we have drawn the game but we have to look at the positives, which is 48 hours later after a pretty poor performance we have played well and shown good character.’

Chilwell has been one of Chelsea’s most potent attacking weapons this season but insists defending remains his ‘priority’ responsibility.

‘I know the way we want to play at Chelsea is with the full-backs joining in,’ he added.

‘I have that licence that when I do go forward I know the midfielders are going to cover me.

‘I do like to get forward but the priority is obviously defending, but when I have the opportunity to go forward I do.’

Chilwell came agonisingly close to scoring a stunning winner for Chelsea in the dying moments of the game but the full-back’s strike sailed past Emiliano Martinez’s post and the points were shared.

‘It was the last minute of the game, Callum [Hudson-Odoi] put a lovely ball in so I thought I might as well just hit it and I could not have hit it any better,’ Chilwell continued.

‘At the moment we are not quite getting the rub of the green, maybe on another day that goes in, but we will keep working hard and try to put things right.’
