Coach Frank Lampard admits he is angry with Chelsea’s performance in their 3-1 loss to Boxing Day rivals Arsenal.
Goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka were more than enough to lead the Gunners to their first win since November 1, as Tammy Abraham’s late goal’s nothing happened.
Speaking after the match, Lampard admitted that he had been left bitterly disappointed by his team’s slow and failed efforts, while sharing responsibilities for himself and the players.
“It was not good enough. We fought in the second half, but in the first half we had a lot to do. “The players who came in added speed, energy and intensity,” Lampard initially told Sky Sports.
“I will take responsibility from abroad, but the players must also take responsibility. The message was clear – Arsenal are a dangerous team. “When you go out and play 60 or 70 percent then you will not win any games.”
“I am angry because I want us to win matches. It was an opportunity to go to second place. “You get what you deserve.”
“You can prepare as much as you want, but if you come out like that, that’s another thing.”
“If you do not complete the cases, things go against you like Saka’s goal. This is life. “In another day we could have scored the penalty and come back, but it is not a day for us”, concluded the coach of Bluve. / Telegraph /
