Stamford Bridge boss put players through tough workout.
Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas accused his players of letting themselves and the club down in the 5-3 defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.
The Blues boss laid into his team in a furious 30 minute training ground rant the following day in which he accused them of ‘breaking promises’.
Villas-Boas is angry with the players for failing to carry out his tactical demands and not sticking to his game plan against the Gunners, according to the Daily Mail.
The players arrived at Cobham expecting a gentle, post-match warm down, but the Portuguese put them through a tough workout after a severe dressing down.
AVB also made it clear he expected the team to raise their performance against Genk in the Champions League on Tuesday and at Blackburn on Saturday.
Sunday’s dressing down was the first time the Villas-Boas has been critical of Chelsea’s players since he arrived at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have not kept a clean sheet for nine league matches, have lost their last two in the Premier League and are nine points behind leaders Manchester City.
Although Villas-Boas felt the side were unlucky to lose at Queens Park Rangers with nine men, he did not give his players any room for manoeuvre after conceding five goals.
