Chelsea Coach Frank Lampard has slammed his players after yesterday’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal on Tuesday, MySportDab reports.
The Blues went ahead after 28 minutes through Jorginho from the penalty spot.
Chelsea were awarded the penalty after former player David Luiz was sent off for a tackle on striker Tammy Abraham.
But Gabriel Martinelli equalised for Arsenal in the second half to make it 1-1, however, Cesar Azpilicueta got the next goal and put the Blues 2-1 up with just five minutes left.
understands Chelsea were already happy they had won the game but Hector Bellerin silenced everyone as the Spaniard slotted the ball past goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga in the 87th minute.
Abraham limped off during the final minutes of the game after an ankle injury, however, Chelsea failed to respond with another goal and the game ended 2-2.
And Frank Lampard was angry with his players, insisting his team must be smarter.
He said: “I’m Frustrated because we want to win. We got a goal, they were down to 10 men and we just have to improve to score another goal.
“Then we failed to defend well and gave them two goals. That’s clearly people not doing their jobs which they should. Moments like this are crucial and makes you lose points at this level.
“We could have scored three or four goals. Having many shots, crosses and lots of close moments. We need to be clinical.
“When games comes you have to have the killer instinct. We don’t have that at the moment.
“We might be young and a bit of development about us but we have to show that quality. It’s all about us.
“I am disappointed about the state of the game. We clearly deserved to go 1-0 up.
“For some time after that we were getting used to them with 10 men.
“But we created so many chances in the second half, it was just the same old story, we failed to score.
“In football stupid errors can cost you points.”
The 2-2 draw leaves Chelsea fourth in the Premier League, six points ahead of fifth placed Manchester United.
