Chelsea fans are divided over the performance of Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss, with the Blues struggling for form in recent weeks.

According to Garth Crooks, Chelsea have exceeded expectations this season and that is down to Frank Lampard.

Crooks told BBC: “Chelsea are fourth in the table and staring at the trap door in the Champions League.

“Nevertheless, the Blues are still punching above their weight and that is down to Frank Lampard.”

Meanwhile, Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer insists Chelsea must improve at the back and turn possession into goals to secure a top four finish.

Shearer said: “They have got injuries but they did have a nine-point cushion to fifth position in November.

“They are conceding too many goals. They have conceded 39 goals and there is no consistency in there in terms of the players that are used in that back-line.

“They had a lot of possession today [against Bournemouth] and they have got to start turning [it into goals].”
