Tammy Abraham has revealed that Frank Lampard has told the Chelsea players to cool their anger from the Newcastle defeat by beating Arsenal.
‘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.’
Chelsea’s defeat against Newcastle was yet another painful loss.
It’s a tough one to take,’ the England international said. ‘These are the kind of games you watch on TV and you never expect it to happen to you. We dominated the game, in the second half I don’t remember them having a shot until the last minute and they score. ‘For us, we have to give credit to Newcastle, they defended well all game, they disrupted our style of play, but we gave it our all and were unfortunate to lose at the end.’
Lampard also wants his Chelsea boys to not rely on the striker alone.
‘We can’t absolutely rely on Tammy Abraham,’ he said. ‘We have to have goals from across the frontline if we want to bridge the gap upwards. Tammy has been fantastic this season – it didn’t quite come off for him today but that’s football.
