– Frank Lampard could be forced to keep some of his players intending to leave Chelsea this summer
– It is understood that Andreas Christensen got injured which could hamper Fikayo Tomori’s departure
– Chelsea have just won once out of the last seven matches in all competitions
Frank Lampard will not be letting some players leave Chelsea during the January window following the injury to Andreas Christensen.
Fikayo Tomori has been linked to Premier League club Leeds United but with the injury to the Danish defender, the England center-back could be forced to remain at Stamford Bridge.
Christensen was struck with injury during the draw with Aston Villa and could keep him on the sidelines for a long period of time which could affect Tomori’s exit.
Thiago Silva and Kourt Zouma are the starting center-backs for the Blues while Antonio Rudiger is the only recognized replacement if Tomori leaves the club.
Roman Abramovic expected to bring in new players following the club’s run of form in the Premier League.
Lampard has come under immense pressure at Stamford Bridgerecording just one win in his last seven matches across all competitions.
“I enjoy pressure. If I didn’t enjoy it I would not have got back into this, or I would walk away at the first chance, and that’s never ever going to be something that I would do.
“The first person that puts pressure on me is me. I do that all the time, for good and for bad.
“I take it on. I don’t mind it. That’s how I am. Maybe my wife will tell you how I react to pressure better than I do. But I don’t kick the dog!
“It doesn’t mean you are always happy. I’m not as happy right now as I was when we beat Leeds last month and we were on a 16 game unbeaten run. That’s normal.
“But it makes me focus on the job. You learn a lot more in defeat or in tough moments. You have to review more, look at yourself more, look at every little tiny percentage, and I like doing that.
“That makes you better as a coach and as a person.
“It’s a different level of pressure from when you are a player, and that’s something I had to handle as soon as I stepped into management. Because you take the pressure on from more angles, and rightly so.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Fikayo Tomori will be looking to revive his career in the January transfer window as the defender could join Leeds United, The Sun.
The 23-year-old has only managed to get 45 minutes of action in the entire Premier League season under Frank Lampard.
The arrival of Thiago Silva in the summer as a free agent has even further dented the chances of Tomiri getting playing time for the Blues.
