It’s been a tough past month for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, as the Blues went from third in the league and just two points off the top, to 9th position.

Chelsea have gotten only 4 points from a possible 18 in the last six games, showing how much the team has slumped.

The phase from praise to judgment has been so instant for Lampard, but Blues hero Pat Nevin believes that a good manager always finds a way to come out of a tough situation, as he backs Chelsea to come back better after taking a break from the league.

Nevin wrote in his column for Chelsea FC: “The only positive is that we got to the break and then managed to adapt it a bit in the second half. It just goes to show that in the top league against the very top teams, things can get away from you very quickly indeed.

“I will be interested to see if Frank changes the system for the next league outing. He might not though when we visit Fulham because they are a very different proposition from a Manchester City side on fire.

“We always judge managers by what they do when things are going well. The real test of their abilities comes during the tough times.”
