Tammy Abraham has ordered Chelsea to take their anger out on Arsenal tomorrow night.
The Blues never looked like scoring against Newcastle on Saturday despite 19 shots and left with nothing after Isaac Hayden’s last-gasp winner.
Striker Abraham was crowded out by the Toon’s five-man defence and squandered two half-chances.
Ahead of the Gunners’ visit, he said: “It’s massive and we have to take our anger out against them.
“Saturday was tough to take. Those are the kind of games you watch on TV and you never expect it to happen to you.
“It was hard, especially as a striker. There’s no space for you — just overcrowded with a lot of bodies around — so it was frustrating for me.”
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard revealed a new forward was his priority after growing concerned at a lack of a cutting edge in the final third.
He said: “We spend a lot of time around the opposition box and we have chipped in with some goals from midfield.

“But we need more goals from the frontline. We need to be clinical.”
Lamps will stick by Abraham, 22, who has 13 goals in his debut season in the top flight.
He added: “Harry Kane has afternoons like that, so does Kylian Mbappe, so does Lionel Messi.
“I think it was just a difficult afternoon.”
