Chelsea failed to close the gap on third placed Leicester City after losing 1-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he can’t complain about the performance of the players against Newcastle United because they gave everything.

Lampard said: “I think they gave everything and I can’t complain about that at all, because they did, they pushed and pushed, and sometimes football just does that to you.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham insists the Blues must take out the anger of the loss against Arsenal on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge.

“It’s massive,” said Abraham. “The gaffer said after the game ‘we gave it our all, keep your heads up we’ve got another massive game on Tuesday’ and we just have to take our anger out against Arsenal.”
