It was reported that Lampard on Friday suffered his first defeat as Chelsea manager after his side conceded a late goal against Kawasaki Frontale in a pre-season friendly match in Yokohama.

Striker Leandro Damiao’s header ensured Frontale defeated the UEFA Europa League holders 1-0.

Speaking on what he discovered from his side’s defeat to Kawasaki, Lampard was quoted by Football London as telling reporters at post-match: “The biggest thing I discovered after today’s defeat was a real appetite and attitude to work in the humidity with jet lag for a lot of the players.”

Lampard added: “Obviously we want to win matches no matter win, but 10 days into pre-season having flown into Japan three days ago brings up a lot of difficulties for us physically.

“That’s where I was really pleased with the players because physically they gave everything in strong humidity.”

Chelsea will now tackle Barcelona on July 13 in their next pre-season fixture.
