Frank Lampard's side lacked tempo and creativity -
"Maybe for the fans and the players, but not for me," he told BBC Radio 5 Live. "I didn't get excited in the great run that we had, the Premier League is tough and I felt there was a lot of improvement needed, and that's proved true."
He added: "I think it's a reaction time for everybody, myself, the players. Fans are coming here and watching us at home struggle to beat teams that we should beat.
"I expected us to offer more to break a team down that was as organised as Bournemouth were.
"Sometimes you can work on things all week and recreating them on a match day is a difficult thing. Today we were too slow with the ball."
