Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea to compensate for their loss to Newcastle against Arsenal.

Chelsea players were left scratching their heads as a fast-paced attack allowed Newcastle United to seal a last-minute victory in the latest Premier League match between them.

Chelsea will now host their local rivals Arsenal up next in the Premier League on Tuesday.

Tammy Abraham, among many other Chelsea players, were frustrated after the last loss. But manager Frank Lampard wants his players to hold on their frustration and take it out in the upcoming tie against 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,” Abraham said as per Football365.

“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.”
