Frank Lampard is planning for a pep talk for misfiring Timo Werner ahead of Chelsea’s next game.
“The goals not going in is something an attacking player will get judged on,” Lampard said. “Today, Timo wasn’t giving us enough with or without the ball.
“With some of it we have to give him time, because it’s a different league, but also we have to get there quickly.
“I’ll have a conversation with him.”
Asked about Jorginho’s penalty miss, Lampard stayed calm.
“We’ll see … I won’t comment on that one,” said the Chelsea head coach, speaking in a post-match news conference.
“I will say Jorginho added a lot to the team in the second half, so we’ll deal with the penalties going forward.”
Lampard was left less than impressed with Chelsea’s overall attitude as well.
“I’m not sure if ‘complacent’ is the right word, but there was definitely a lethargic approach to the first half,” he said.
“No matter whether you’re playing Arsenal at a tough moment, who’ve got quality players, or any team in the Premier League, you can’t turn up lethargic.
“I am concerned by what’s at the bottom of it but I’m not sure it’s definitely complacency.
“But if you come and play slow on and off the ball, you’re going to have a big problem trying to get a result.
“The message was clear about what the game was: we had to attack it in the right way and we didn’t.”
