Frank Lampard’s reign as Chelsea boss didn’t get off to the start he would have wanted after the 4-0 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Since then, Lampard has been able to guide Chelsea to fifth on the Premier League table, just two points off second-placed Manchester City.
Jordan Seward of Daily Mail has given Lampard a rating of 7.5
Seward wrote in Daily Mail: “Amid a gloomy backdrop, Frank Lampard has steered his side towards the light.
“Expectations were low this season having lost Eden Hazard and been prohibited from signing new players, but hopes have been restored by some encouraging performances.
“Lampard has got Chelsea playing an attractive brand of football and his faith in youth is being repaid with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount reveling in their new first-team roles.
“Things got off to a shaky start but Chelsea have found their balance and have three wins from their last four. Most Blues fans will tell you Lampard has exceeded their early expectations and I tend to agree.”
