Coach Frank Lampard was not satisfied with his students after the FA Cup final defeat. Five minutes after the opening whistle of the FA Cup 2019/20 final at Wembley Stadium rang. Christian Pulisic has brought great joy to Chelsea fans when kicking Arsenal’s net. The idea of early goals will help the Blues play sublime, but they cannot take advantage of that.
Specifically, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace helped Arsenal successfully upstream and crowned the championship in Chelsea’s regret. Coach Frank Lampard had a reason to be dissatisfied with his students after the match.
Accordingly, Frank Lampard said: “We started well in 10 or 15 minutes, scored a goal and created some chance to control the game. But after that, we could only blame ourselves. it seemed we were complacent.
We spent too much time with the ball. We started using short passes as if it were a walk. An FA Cup final can never be such a walk.
We allowed Arsenal to come back into the game and from that point on it was always difficult. A lot of mistakes today are ours. In the second half, the situation got better. The players did their best.
But playing with only 10 people in the last 20 minutes is a really difficult challenge for them. We have become too deadlocked.”
In total in the FA Cup this season, Caballero captured 5 matches for the Blues. In the victory over Manchester United in the semi-finals, the Argentina goalkeeper also started.
The only match in the journey to the final where Lampard chose Kepa instead of Caballero was Liverpool’s competition in round 5. Explaining his selection of staff in the final, Lampard said through BT Sport: “Honestly, that’s also my plan, for Caballero to play quite a lot during the FA Cup campaign.”
