EPL: You’re too nice – Lampard slams Chelsea players after 3-1 defeat to Arsenal


Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has hit out at his players for being “too nice” during their 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on Tuesday.

The Gunners won thanks to a Martin Odegaard double and Gabriel Jesus strike.

Noni Madueke scored the only goal for the visitors in the second half.

Lampard has now criticized his players for giving Arsenal too much space and playing passively.

“The performance in the first half was nowhere near good enough. Too nice to play against, too passive. Defensively the line wasn’t coming up, which was giving them space.

“In possession we weren’t playing over their press. All the things that make you a nice team to play against, we did. The second half was better but the result was relatively confirmed by then,” Lampard said.
