Chelsea under Frank Lampard have been in dismal form this season in the Premier League and they hit another low point this weekend after they were blown out of the park by Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side was heavily depleted due to COVID-19 but even then Chelsea could not find a foothold in the game – losing the match 3-1.
Many reports in England have since claimed that Frank Lampard’s job at the club is under serious threat and if he cannot manage to get his act together then the Blues will not hesitate to look for an alternative.
ESPN though are singing a different tune claiming that despite the recent slump in form, the manager will be given ample time to turn things around at the club.
The report claims: “Chelsea are prepared to give Frank Lampard time to turn around the club’s poor form despite mounting speculation over his future, sources have told ESPN.”
This might seem like really positive news but this same report also claims that some of the Chelsea players are not too happy with how Frank Lampard has been handling the side.
ESPN’s James Olley goes on to add: “Sources have told ESPN that several Chelsea players have expressed their frustrations at Lampard’s tactical approach and there is a view among some that he is yet to establish his best team.”
A manager is as good as his players so if the Chelsea players are not willing to stand by their boss then there’s no way Frank Lampard will be able to save his job in the coming months.

Arsenal had also been going through a similar dull phase but all the players stood by Mikel Arteta and now they have successfully turned things around.
If Frank Lampard wishes to get positive results in the coming weeks then he will have to urge his players to perform on the pitch for him or else he will just have to find a new job.
