Lampard defended Blues shot-stopper after the costly error that led to the 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United on Saturday.

'I will always defend all the players and if there are individual errors then players are the first ones to put their hands up and goalkeepers should be as well,' said Lampard.

Newcastle handed Chelsea the eighth defeat of the season as the Blues hope to maintain a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea will entertain Arsenal on Tuesday in their next Premier League clash as they hope to return back to winning way after the slip up against the Magpies.

Chelsea conceded a stoppage-time goal to surrender the three points to Newcastle United.
