- The Blues suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal in the FA Cup final.
- Lampard says that his team started off well but got complacent after the first goal and allowed Arsenal back into the game.
- He laments the unfortunate injuries and says that this game was the 'tipping point' at the end of a long season for the Blues.
Frank Lampard told BBC One after the FA Cup final defeat: "We started well for 10-15 minutes and we can only blame ourselves from that point. We got complacent, we took time on the ball like it was a stroll and we allowed them into the game. It's hard to get back into the game then. A lot of today is on us.
"All I can do from the sidelines is shout! There are elements in our game that we have worked hard on all year but that is in you as a group. Today we were slow, we played back on ourselves, invited pressure. We didn't play well enough to win a final. There were things in the game which conspired against us, but we didn't play well enough.
"I'm not even thinking about next week, it all came together for us today, two hamstrings, a dislocated shoulder. Willian pulled up in training yesterday, Kante wasn't fit. Ruben Loftus-Cheek out. It's the end of a long long season and it was the tipping point for us."
Christian Pulisic opened the scoring but his goal was cancelled out by a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty. The Arsenal striker then scored the game's winner in the second half as Chelsea suffered 3 injuries and an unfair sending off for Mateo Kovacic.
Some shambolic refereeing combined with a poor display on the field led to this defeat in a game to forget. We look forward to Champions League football the next season now.
