The first goal came through in the 50th minute by Chilwell, second in the 66th minute by Zuoma while the last two came through penalties by Jorginho in the 78th and 82nd minutes respectively.

Lampard also handed a league debut to £22m goalkeeper Edouard Mendy – his latest recruit in a summer spending spree now beyond £220m in response to last year’s transfer ban.

“There is a lot of reactionary stuff about us because of expectation,” the Chelsea boss told BBC Sport.

“I do think people have to remain calm – that’s how I have to be, I can’t get caught up in it. It’s my job not to be reactionary and not get too upset or down.

“We got a lot of credit for coming fourth [last season] and we are not going to go from there to 100 instantly. We are a work in progress but I am up for that work and so are the players.”

There was a rare moment of discontent among the hosts’ ranks as Tammy Abraham, having won his side’s first penalty, felt aggrieved at being denied the opportunity to take the second by captain Cesar Azpilicueta, who shepherded him away from Jorginho.

On Abraham’s dispute with Jorginho, Lampard added: “I don’t mind Tammy’s exuberance but that has been dealt with by Azpilicueta and then me in the dressing room. I don’t mind a bit of conflict in the moment but it has been dealt with and won’t happen again.”
