Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed Chelsea players ripped into each other at half-time before a stunning late comeback against Arsenal.

Arsenal led 1-0 at halftime before the Blues scored two late goals courtesy Jorginho and Tammy Abraham to win the game.

Lampard said: “I like the fact that we had that inquest because I don’t want 11 quiet players who just get on with it and trot out again.

“I said my piece and was pretty firm because you can’t just come here and have nothing about you and think you’re going to get anything.

“Then the lads started talking and it was a bit aggressive which is a good thing.

“And the response was everything I wanted because we’ve been rightly been questioned after our recent games against Everton and Southampton.

“We showed today that we can have a right go and win a game with fighting spirit.

“We were so awful for 30 minutes, slow, lethargic, nervous. I don’t think we can get to where we want to get without aggression.

“We’ve had the majority of possession in every League game we’ve played but we’re fourth for a reason so we can get more aggressive and be more clinical in the box.”
