The 2-2 draw with Arsenal felt like a defeat as the Blues failed to take the advantage against Arsenal.

Chelsea had gone up through a Jorginho penalty goal in the 28th minute. However, Gabriel Martinelli scored from a counter to level the scores after the hour mark.

A late Cesar Azpilicueta goal in the 84th minute seemed to have won the game for the Blues, but Arsenal equalised through Hector Bellerin three minutes later to seal a 2-2 draw.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was critical of the team’s performance in the draw and revealed that some players didn’t do their job well.

Lampard said in his post match reaction: “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.”

Lampard will particularly be unimpressed with Emerson Palmieri who let Bellerin cut in and shoot with his stronger foot.

  1. Lempard is just useles with his useless Emerson, we have Alonso a very good player but choose his useless Emerson

  2. I blame Frank in his subs. He got it all wrong by withdrawing our midfield duo. And backley is not the type of player Chelsea need. He allow the ball to be passed on to bellerin without allacking. Let Frank try know his best starting 11

  3. Yes I can see lampard as useless coach and of course he can’t do the job. 🙄😔
