Amid stories of discontent among Chelsea players not playing regularly, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has sent a message to his players.
Lampard said: “Players who are not playing will not be happy. We have a big squad and there are some players not playing.
“I don’t ask for them to be jumping up and down about how great I am. All I ask is that they train well, back their team-mates and have a determined attitude every day. That’s it.
“I don’t expect it to be a popularity contest for myself. I never felt that in the dressing room under any manager, at the best of times or in tough times. The point is players have to keep fighting.
“We do not have the experience or stability of other clubs who have been doing it for the last two or three years. There will be bumpy moments. What we have to stick together.”
