Leeds United striker Patrick Bamford has heaped praise on former club Chelsea for the progress made under manager Frank Lampard. Bamford recently found the back of the net against the Blues in the Premier League, but the west London side made a terrific comeback to three goals in what ended up as a comfortable win.
The Blues are currently one of the most in-form teams in the Premier League and Bamford has acknowledged that the Whites were outplayed by the capital outfit, he told The Athletic’s Ornstein and Chapman Podcast: “We nit-pick everything really. Our physical stats weren’t bad but Chelsea really outperformed what they’ve done the rest of the season, in terms of physically. Then obviously we know about Chelsea how good they are. ‘I think that’s probably the best team we’ve played this year.”
