Lampard believes Chelsea should have scored more goals against the Magpies.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was pleased with how his Blues secured a win against Newcastle on Saturday afternoon to move straight to the top of the Premier League table.

The West London club beat the Magpies 2-0 at St. James’ Park, thanks to an own-goal from Federico Fernandes and a 65th-minute strike from England international Tammy Abraham.

Despite dominating Steve Bruce’s side on the road, Lampard said “there’s is still improvement and work to be done” on his team.

While speaking to BBC Match of the Day, the 42-year-old said: "I'm pleased. It's a tough match to come here after the international break, the players have all been away.

"We dominated the game, we could have scored more goals. But the lads dealt with it very well.

"We lost here last year so it's good progression to come here and get the right result.

"We've all seen these games before, Newcastle became more positive at the start of the second half, their press was more progressive.

"But as long as Timo has the pace and positive nature he showed for Tammy' s goal then that's a big threat for us

"You are always tested in different ways in these league, balance is really important and, we are working towards that.

"We have to think about the big picture and there is improvement and work to be done.

"We need the squad, we need everybody. It's a grueling season as everyone keeps saying and it's good for the team's confidence that we got another clean sheet."
