Callum Hudson-Odoi has called his team out for starting too slow against the Gunners.
Chelsea faced Arsenal on Saturday and were beaten severely by the Gunners by 3-1, with only Tammy Abraham scoring a goal in the 85th minute for the Blues. It was a major letdown for Chelsea.
Hudson-Odoi played an imperative role in assisting Abraham’s goal, but was nevertheless not happy with the team’s effort in the London derby.
“It feels like we let ourselves down,” the England international said after the final whistle. “We know that we can do much better than we did. We should have put the same energy we had in the second half into the first half as well.
“We should have had the same attitude from the get-go and pushed all the way through the 90 minutes. So we’re really disappointed in ourselves.
“We started too slow, we all know that. We knew from the start it was going to be a difficult game no matter what. They’re Arsenal, they’re a good team.
“We wanted to come out here and try and get the three points but unfortunately we didn’t. We know that we started slow. In the second half we tried better to come out faster.
“We were unfortunate to concede another goal, because we got ourselves kind of back in it, but we need to push harder and keep working harder to get the three points.”
