Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he is ‘unconcerned’ by speculation surrounding his future at Chelsea
The Blues have now won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions after losing 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne all netting for the visitors.
Asked about the mounting pressure on him, Lampard said: “I’m not concerned on that point.
“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.”
