– Lampard is under immense pressure following Chelsea’s recent slump in the Premier League
– Their 2-0 defeat on Tuesday night saw the Blues drop to eighth on the standings with 29 points
– The west Londoners now sit nine points off the top and five off a Champions League place
Frank Lampard has broken his silence over reports he could be sacked following Chelsea’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday night, January 19.
Two first half goals from James Maddison and Wilfred Ndidi condemned the Blues to a comprehensive defeat at the King Power Stadium.
The west London side were looking to build on their wins in two of their earlier fixtures but Leicester proved too hot to handle.
The result subsequently saw Lampard’s men drop to eighth on the standings, with the Foxes moving to the summit.
And with Chelsea clearly plummeting, pressure is mounting on Lampard, with the Englishman now odds’ favourite to be axed.
Speaking in his post-match interview, the former midfielder admitted his job could be at stake but exuded confidence of steadying the ship.
“I try not to sense any of that because I can’t control it,” Metro UK quoted Lampard replied when asked about his future after the defeat to Leicester.
“But the reality is for me is that I could sense these periods would come. And that’s all I have to concern myself with is how to deal with it how to get us out of it,” he added.
He further revealed he has already informed the Chelsea hierarchy that the current squad of players lacks experience to win titles.
The Stamford Bridge dwellers are scheduled to take on Luton Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday, January 24, before hosting Wolves three days in the Premier League.
