Frank Lampard furious after losing 1-3 in the derby with Arsenal

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was furious with his players after losing 1-3 in the derby with Arsenal. He believes that his team played without the necessary desire in this match and this led to the unpleasant defeat.

For him, such a thing is unacceptable for a match in the Premier League. “In the first half we complicated our lives. You can’t play without energy and desire in the Premier League. You can prepare very well for a game, but if you look like that, uou can’t win. It’s all in your head. If you play below the required level, you’ll get a goals like Saka’s.”Lampard said.

The specialist continued to criticize his players, saying that they should take responsibility for their performance. “We didn’t play well enough. We fought in the second half, but we were already in a very difficult situation. The players who came in brought the necessary energy and intensity. I take my responsibility for this loss, but the players must also take their responsibility. It was clear. Arsenal are a dangerous team.”

I’m angry because I want to win. We had a chance to come out second, but we got what we deserved,” finished the coach.

Arsenal who had bad time in the Premier League so far welcomed Chelsea at the Emirates in the Boxing Day derby. The home team started the match well, and went ahead 1-0 with Lacazette’s penalty in the 34th minute.

Continuing the offensive game, Arsenal increased the difference to two,goal scored by Granit Xhaka from a free kick in the 44th minute. Arsenal started the second half effectively, carried the score to 3-0 with Bukayo Saka in the 56th minute. Chelsea’s goal in the 85th minute by Tammy Abraham could not save the Blues from defeat.

The three dropped points mean Chelsea remain behind Leicester City and Manchester United in the race to pursue league leaders Liverpool.
