Frank Lampard replaced Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge after the Italian opted to leave Chelsea for Juventus after just one season in charge.

The Italian promised brilliant, attacking football at Stamford Bridge but fans got disappointed with the football on offer and urged the club to sack the Italian.

With Lampard replacing Sarri at Chelsea, have Chelsea improved under Lampard or has the team regressed?

Despite losing Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and N’Golo Kante playing just 377 minutes of Premier League football so far this season, Chelsea have improved under Lampard.

After 12 Premier League games, Lampard’s Chelsea have averaged more points per game (2.17 to 1.89 under Sarri), a better per-game goal differential than we did last season (0.83 to 0.63 under Sarri) and a better expected goal (xG) differential (0.88 to 0.62 under Sarri).

Lampard is delivering the football Sarri promised Chelsea fans last season.
