It’s been a difficult start to the season under Frank Lampard with the Blues having just five points from games.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown believes Lampard should be supported because he has demonstrated he can get good performances out of young players.

Keown told Daily Mail: “With what Chelsea are going through, Frank Lampard should be supported. OK, Chelsea should never be 2-0 up against a promoted club at Stamford Bridge and draw 2-2.

“But Lampard has demonstrated he can get good performances out of young players. It shouldn’t be a case of him keeping the seat warm until they can find another head coach, once they can sign players again.

“Solskjaer has to get results very quickly. It feels like he is struggling. One win in 10 is not good enough. Solskjaer — and Lampard, given Chelsea’s transfer ban — are two young bosses working with hands tied behind their backs.”

Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton also want the Chelsea board to stick with Lampard.

Sutton added: “There is a willingness to show patience with Lampard. He is working in the post- Hazard era and putting up with a transfer embargo.

“Lampard should last the season, but I’m not so sure Solskjaer will. He took over at Old Trafford last season, finishing with one win in their last seven Premier League games. Now their troubles are continuing.”

      You don’t know anything about Chelsea, so leave it with the fans. We believe Lampard is more effective especially working with the young ones coming up.
