Chilwell breaks silence after blows up with Thiago Silva, Enzo
Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell has spoken for the first time since their 3-1 defeat at Arsenal on Tuesday.
According to Chilwell, the players “are hurt and angry.”
The Gunners raced into a three-goal lead thanks to a Martin Odegaard brace and Gabriel Jesus’ strike.
Noni Madueke’s 65th-minute goal was a mere consolation.
The result leaves Blues interim boss Frank Lampard with six losses in his first six games in charge.
Chilwell was involved in an on-field clash with Enzo Fernandez and Thiago Silva after Arsenal’s second goal as Odegaard was once again left in acres of space to turn home.
“We’re hurt and angry, every negative emotion you could think of,” Chilwell told the club’s official website.
“It was very poor. We knew that if we came here and played like that we would have to expect to concede three goals.
“We weren’t getting tight to anyone, weren’t laying a hand on anyone. We were passive. We’re probably quite a nice team to play against which has been the story of the whole season, to be honest.”
