Chelsea interim manager Frank Lampard has blasted Chelsea board after Chelsea’s defeat to Arsenal, MySportDab reports.
The Blues suffered their sixth consecutive Premier League defeat under Lampard at the Emirates.
Arsenal proved too formidable for the Blues, scoring three goals just over the half hour mark to seal the win.
Martin Odeggard’s early brace and Gabriel Jesus’ strike in the first half set the Gunners enroute to a win with Madueke scoring Chelsea’s consolation goal in the 65th minute.
The win saw Arsenal return to the top of the Premier League while Chelsea continue to slide down towards the relegation zone.
Speaking after the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, Chelsea interim boss Frank Lampard, blasted the Chelsea board for the club’s woes this season.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Frank Lampard said;
“It is clear to see why the club is struggling. The players cannot be blamed.
“The club was a big success 20 years ago, but that is not the case at the moment.
“The slump in form could be attributed to may things not only the players’ from and confidence.”
Frank Lampard’s comment was a thinly veiled dig on the Chelsea board and their management strategy.
The all-time Chelsea highest scorer has previously referenced the club’s lack of consistency at the dugout unlike their London rivals Arsenal as one of the reasons the team is struggling.
Frank Lampard is yet to win a single game in his interim spell as Chelsea manager.
The defeat to Arsenal was his sixth successive loss since taking over and he seems to blame the club’s board for their handling of the club.
Chelsea are now 12th on the Premier League table after the loss and could end up struggling to survive relegation if they continue losing their remaining fixtures.
