Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted his annoyance that his side couldn’t control the game and maintain their lead despite having gone ahead against the Gunners twice.

It was a frustrating game for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that his side must go back to the basics.

The Chelsea manager said after the game: “Disappointed. Cos the situation of the game. Deserved to go 1-0 up, not just the sending off but the general play anyway, the way we were playing. Of course we created enough in the second half, it’s the same story for us that we don’t finish our chances, and we make errors to give them two goals on the break. It probably shows us where we’re at. We work hard but basic errors when you should control a game can end up losing you points.

“We stayed in the mode of dealing with them with 11, when really with 10 we could have been a bit more aggressive. I didn’t mind that, cos at half-time it gave us a chance to reboot, recharge and go it again. Even though we’re disappointed with the result and the goals [we conceded] you still look at the chances we created in the second half and actually also in the first, and say we should be scoring more goals. You let teams stay in the game it becomes really tough, and both the goals I didn’t like. If we’re going to get to where we want to be, and we’re in the process, we’ve got to stop that stuff, cos we can’t get there like that.

“It’s not the slip from Ngolo, that can happen, it’s the fact they get away at the edge of our box. That’s a moment sleeping. People should know their jobs. And then the last goal, so easy. It’s a goal you see every day over the park, a right back who moves it slowly onto his left foot and rolls it into the far corner. That can’t happen.”

    Iam not happy of what happened we need to improve.

  2. Frank, don’t keep on about not scoring enough goals – defence is shocking and Kepa is the worst keeper in the league. Sort out the defence and the results will improve

  3. Hey! I’ve got 150milliin pounds for buying players,y can’t u release just 60m pounds to buy Timo Werner.Y clinging (hold ing) too much for the money as if it’s yr money.The owner released that money in order to buy the players & not clinging on to it.What should bare in mind is that,this is business & u r waisting his resources by losing games Everytime unnecessary.Plz Abramovnic chase the entire board cos they’ve failed their jobs.Time is being waisted without signing a single player.Buy 1 striker (Werner),1 attacking midfielder (Isco),1 defender (Koulibary) & a goalkeeper.

  4. When you keep complaining about poor finishing,what do you want us to do about it when you KEEP Fielding your favourite English have an option of using midfielders like Pedro who will kill the game for you,if you don’t prefer the likes of giroud .KEEP defence, return kante to his defensive midfield position and it will work for you

  5. Chelsea for life I bleed blue. What’s the hake the board is dilly darling in buying new players to bolster our squad. It’s simple, the funds has been availed to e’m just buy Timo, isco and Coulibaly. The fans will abruptly stop the nagging.
