The pressure may be mounting on Frank Lampard, but the Blues boss has maintained that he knows just what to do to get his players firing on all cylinders.

Chelsea were looking like one of the best sides in the league at some point this season, having gone 17 games without tasting defeat in all competitions. However, things have since changed, and Chelsea have now lost four of their last six games.

Despite the mounting pressure, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that the way back to confidence is to work hard, and that there’s no other way out.

Speaking ahead of facing Morecambe, Lampard said: “I don’t know any other way out of a lack of confidence than to sprint your way out of it and fight your way out of it.

“You shouldn’t be in this game unless you understand those moments come and the players know that. I’ve been very clear with them on that and that’s where our challenge is.

“It’s normal at a difficult time. Football relies so much on confidence, individually and collectively, and the easy times are when confidence is flowing – 16 games unbeaten coming out of Leeds, everyone is happy, moving the ball well, pressure doesn’t affect them on the pitch. It doesn’t take long sometimes for that to change, that’s top-level football.”
