Frank Lampard admitted he would be talking to Jorginho after the Italian missed a second penalty of the season on Wednesday against Russian outfit FC Krasnodar.

After seeing a penalty stopped by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson this season, Jorginho sent a spot kick against the post in a 4-0 Champions League win.

While it didn’t stop Chelsea getting a vital three points, with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic grabbing the goals.

With Jorginho already off the pitch, Werner bagged from the spot and some questioned whether the Germany international should take over penalty taking duties.

And Lampard admitted he would speak to both after the game.

‘Jorginho has had an incredibly successful rate of scoring penalties in his career, particularly at Chelsea,’ he said.

‘My feeling is that when you take as many penalties as he does there can be periods when you can miss one or two. I’ve experienced that as a player.

‘I’ve no problem at all with his style of taking them because of the success he has had and Timo Werner I know is very capable of taking penalties, as we saw.

‘We have other players that can so I’ll talk with them afterwards to see how we move forward, but we have good takers at the club.’

Werner was coy over whether he would continue taking penalties.

‘It depends on the game,’ he said. ‘Not only because Jorginho missed the penalty (does it mean) that some other shoot. But I’m very happy that I scored today and that we won 4-0.

‘I think it’s good for us because the last game was not like this. We don’t win so easily. It was good, not only for me, but was good for the whole team.’
