– Frank Lampard is not impressed with his boys as Chelsea lost 3-1 at Arsenal
– It was fight to finish at the Emirates Stadium as the Gunners claimed all three points
– Lampard described his side’s performance as not good enough, claiming the players must take responsibiltiy
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has taken a swipe on the entire Blues’ squad following their dismal performance against Arsenal on Boxing Day as they lost 3-1 at the Emirates.
The furious tactician stated that the team must take responsibility as he ranted that they performed so poorly to miss out on a chance to go second on the standings.
Arsenal spectacularly bounced back to winning ways following their famous victory over their bitter rivals Chelsea.
The Gunners who have failed to record a win in their last ten matches stunned Frank Lampard’s men at their home turf.
Alexander Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Bukayo Saka scored for Arsenal while a consolation from Tammy Abraham was not enough to bring the Blues back into the game.
Chelsea boss Lampard said after the game, as cited in Dailymail:
“Not good enough. First half not good enough, second half yeah good enough but a mountain to climb.
“I’ll take responsibility on the outside but players have to take responsibility because the message was clear. ‘I’m angry because I want to win games.
“Today was an opportunity to go to a place where they’re having a tough time but you know how that goes. You either make it more difficult for them or you give them a little opening – we did that from minute one and then we continued to do it for 45 minutes and then you get what you deserve.
‘”Lazy giving away a penalty, and a free-kick, I’m very disappointed with way we approached first half.”
