Frank Lampard has bemoaned Chelsea's narrow UEFA Super Cup defeat by Liverpool on Wednesday night and expressed his unhappiness at the fact that Jurgen Klopp's side had two extra days to prepare.

Chelsea were a far cry from the side who were humbled by a ruthless Manchester United on Sunday and for long spells looked the better side in Istanbul.

The match ultimately went down to the lottery of a shootout, and Lampard admitted it had been hard for his side to take the defeat but added that he had seen plenty of positives in the performance.

Lampard, whose side were the better team for large chunks of the game, hailed his team - but admitted he wasn't happy with the fact Liverpool were afforded two days extra preparation time for the clash here in Turkey.

Liverpool played at home against Norwich on Friday night whereas Chelsea travelled to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Lampard added: 'I don't want to look like I'm moaning but it clearly affects preparation, it's unfortunate they have two day extra recovery.

'I respect Liverpool, but I felt we were the stronger team.
