It was a sad one for Chelsea as the Gunners had only two shots at Chelsea’s goal and both were converted.

Chelsea had the numerical advantage and even a penalty to win the game, but the Blues lost concentration at times that cost the team at the end.

Naivety cost Chelsea in Arsenal’s second as the players should have played the ball out when Tammy Abraham was down, but the team kept playing only for Arsenal to score from that situation through Hector Bellerin in the 87th minute.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has slammed his side for not playing the ball out when they had the opportunity to.

The Chelsea boss said: “Yes, the ball should go out. I think Tammy stood up for a while but the ball should go out when he is down. I am not angry at them [Arsenal] for carrying on. That’s normal. They went down a few times when the player was in the box and it was in a critical area. With Tammy, it was out of play a bit so when we won it back we should have knocked it out.

“I don’t know how Tammy is. He had a bang on his ankle, he has had ice on it. I haven’t spoken to him yet, so I can’t really update you on that.”
