Frank Lampard is urging closer to the sacking door at Chelsea having watched his Blues been dominated, outclassed, and above all washed aside by a striker-less Manchester City side led by the midfield Dictator-in-Chief, Kevin de Bruyne yesterday.
The Blues have picked just four points in their last six Premier League games, winning just one, picking a point in one game and losing as many as four games.
This has brought the competence of Frank Lampard into question as his most expensive striker – Timo Werner also keeps his misfiring form intact over the period.
Chelsea spent £47m on Timo Werner from RB Leipzig as well as £72m on Kai Havertz during the last summer transfer window, but the German duo have overwhelmingly underperformed.
Chelsea sits 8th on the league log, seven points behind leaders – Liverpool who have a game in hand against Southampton this evening at the St. Mary’s.
Meanwhile, sports24ghana.com can exclusively say that the chase for the next manager to succeed Frank Lampard is already in motion and the former Chelsea midfield stalwart would have to convince the board in his next three games to keep his job.
