Chelsea boss Frank Lampard told his crestfallen players to take their anger out on Arsenal this week after losing to Newcastle on Saturday. That’s according to striker Tammy Abraham.

Chelsea suffered a disappointing defeat to Newcastle at St. James’ Park.

Isaac Hayden popped up at the back post in the 94th minute to poke in a header to win the game 1-0 for the hosts.

The defeat left Chelsea peering over their shoulder in the race to finish in the top four.

They are now five points ahead of Manchester United and Wolves, and will go into this week’s game against Arsenal needing a win.

And Lampard apparently urged his players to take out their frustrations on the Gunners when they meet on Tuesday night.

Abraham told the Metro that the boss had been unhappy to have not secured the three points, but was already looking ahead to the London derby with Arsenal.

He said: “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’.

“It’s a tough one to take. 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."

Speaking after the game, Lampard admitted he is likely to dip into the transfer market for a backup striker for Abraham.

“In attacking areas, because we need to be more clinical,” he said when asked what the team’s priority is.

“I wouldn’t say ‘a goalscorer’ but we need to be more clinical in the box in terms of our front line.

"When we attack and spend a lot of time around the opposition's box, we have chipped in with some goals from midfield and have people who can arrive from midfield, but the broader reality is that we need more goals from the front line.”

Chelsea have been linked with Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Werner - who has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season.

However, the Bundesliga leaders are unlikely to let the 23-year-old leave until the end of the season.
