Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich sacked Frank Lampard as Chelsea boss on Monday following a poor run of form.

Despite beating Luton Town 3-1 in the FA Cup on Sunday, Abramovich sacked Lampard as he worried the Blues will miss out on Champions League qualification with club ninth in the Premier League.

Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater celebrated the sack of Lampard by posting a picture of himself celebrating in a Leicester City shirt.

Drinkwater posted the picture of himself celebrating just minutes after it was announced that Lampard has been sacked.

Drinkwater was sidelined by Lampard and failed to feature under his leadership as he was loaned out twice last season to Burnley and Aston Villa before being shipped out again this campaign to Turkish outfit Kasimpasa.

The 30 year old has since deleted the post.
