Chelsea lost 1-0 to Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, our fourth defeat in our last five Premier League games.

What’s worrying about these losses is that three of our four losses have come against teams down the table who have been in poor form.

West Ham beat Chelsea despite being on a poor run of eight games without a win. Everton had lost three consecutive games before they beat Chelsea 3-1 last weekend while Bournemouth had lost five consecutive games before their victory at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

All three teams defended deep and Chelsea struggled to break them. In all three games, the tactical changes made by Frank Lampard failed to yield any positive result.

Lampard must devise a plan for teams that sit deep against Chelsea to save our top four hopes.

A month ago, Chelsea were 12 points clear but that could be reduced to just two points if Manchester United beat Everton on Sunday. If Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham beat Wolves and inflict another defeat on Chelsea then they would climb above us in the table.

Lampard must quickly devise a plan B to save our top four hopes.

  1. Lampards is the problem himself. He changes winning teams anyhow. The goes forward without purpose. How does a team go within attacking range with hord of players in the 18 box and then return the ball back to their goalkeeper. Then u seriously wonder what they play for.

  2. Lampard should teach the guys on shooting from afar instead trying to reach in 18 range and taking the ball back again to the goalkeeper Emerson is not a player that you can trust when you are under pressure he doesn’t push the ball forward and he has no plan with the ball when he finds any Chance so please lampard work all those mistakes and am sure you are going to improve
