Frank Lampard was not impressed as his Chelsea team were handed a 3-1 defeat at the Emirates last night.
The win against Chelsea was Arsenal’s first in the last two months and Lampard has slammed his players for failing to show up.
“In the second half we showed some urgency but it was too late,” he said.
“The first half we gave ourselves too much to do, we were very poor.
“You can’t lack energy and desire in the Premier League and we did.
“You can prepare as well as you want but if you turn up like that that’s another thing. It’s in the mind.
“If you perform below par things go against you like the Saka goal. That’s life.
“On another day we could have scored the penalty and come back but it’s not a day for us.
“The teams that win, win, win relentlessly weren’t winning two or three years ago. We are not there yet, that’s clear.
“I felt it when we are on our long unbeaten run and I feel it now. We got a lot wrong today.”
Chelsea do not have much time to turn things around as they take on Aston Villa next on Monday.
