Frank Lampard is under huge pressure as Chelsea boss after a fifth defeat in eight games following the 2-0 defeat to Leicester on Tuesday night.

According to talkSPORT pundit Perry Groves, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has himself to blame for his struggles at Chelsea.

“With Chelsea, the biggest worry is I don’t think the players are having Frank Lampard and Jody Morris as a coaching team, and they are not having Frank Lampard as a manager,” he said on talkSPORT.

“There is no intensity and no desire. […] Chelsea’s team is screaming for a 4-2-3-1; that is the best formation.

“But Frank Lampard is not seeing it, he makes no changes at half-time and keeps the same formation!

“I’ve said it before: When he got the job it was too early for him. He was learning his trade, and he did well last year in his free season because there was limited expectation and he couldn’t sign any players.

“But this team has gone backwards with £220m spent on it! He’s not an elite manager, and he’s at an elite football club.”
