Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is currently under so much pressure after his team’s fortune has dropped considerably in recent weeks.

Chelsea have won only one game in their last five matches, and the Blues boss has been put under pressure since his 17 game unbeaten run ended.

However, the gaffer has revealed that he’s happy with the pressure and that he can handle it.

“It’s not the first test like this,” Lampard pointed out ahead of facing Manchester City.

“Last year there were many tests through the season from start to finish. There was when I first started, there was around Christmas last year when we went from seven wins back-to-back to a difficult time, and that’s the nature of the job when you’re coming into a team that’s young and changing.

“You’re not going to go from zero to 100 so you have to be ready for those times. I think one of my strengths hopefully is never being too excited when we’re going well, I was trying to dampen flames after Leeds for instance when everyone was talking us up, and then my job is to not be too down when we have results go against us.

“The first person that puts pressure on me is me. I do that all the time for good or for bad so that doesn’t change much, but I’m not stupid, I know we need to get results.”
