Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under significant pressure at Stamford Bridge following just one victory in six Premier League games for the Blues.

According to Gabriele Marcotti, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich isn’t prepared to pull the trigger just yet.

He claims that Abramovich will only consider sacking Lampard if Chelsea’s hopes of a top-four finish fade away.

Marcotti said on the Byline Podcast: “Frank Lampard’s job is safe and the board have faith that he can turn it around.

“If top four starts to look unlikely, then a change could be made.”

Meanwhile, Lampard is in defiant mood despite talks of sack.

“I’m not concerned on that point [about the sack],” Lampard said.

“I expected periods of difficulty this year, I said it when we beat Leeds and everyone was championing us to be title contenders – I know that it doesn’t come that easy, I know where we’re at.

“Whether it puts pressure on me is regardless. Because a month ago everyone was asking when I’d sign a new contract, and now people will be saying different things because in quick succession, over a tight, busy period, we’ve lost four games of football.

“So the pressure remains constant in this job and you know in tough moments that will be there. I didn’t get into this job being unaware of that.

“My job is to keep working, my job is to try and lift the players who would have felt that in the first half, they would have felt the differences of City and their receiving of the ball and their individual ability to take the ball in tight areas.

“We’re fighting to try and match those levels and I know it takes time.”

  1. I did cried when we were beating 3-1 two difference times and it’s look like a fun seen us beating this way again and again. Are we for real especially this go to the manager Frank James Lampard who is handing the team needs to be sack for Chelsea to rise from it’s hopeless and shame away from our team this year 2021

  2. Lampard is a dumbass coach

  3. Frank has made chelseafc worst as a team. The annoying thing is he want to build an english team. He want to buy mostly english players.
    Why do we need Rice when we have players who are better then Rice in that team? Lampard’s lack of experience, till date he hasn’t gotten his first 11, and racist attitude is costing Chelsea a lot.
    Sack Lampard. Sack Lampard. Sack Lampard.
