Frank Lampard is one of the greatest players to have ever played for the club, and he left Chelsea with a legendary status.

The Chelsea legend came back to become club boss in 2019, and he did a good job to lead Chelsea to fourth place last season, despite the loss of Eden Hazard and a transfer ban.

Ahead of the season, Chelsea spent over £220m on new signings, but the Blues haven’t looked anywhere near their best.

Chelsea are fast dropping away from the top half of the table, and Lampard’s job is far from certain. Lampard however revealed that some players are not giving their best.

Lampard told the media after the game: “There are players who are not playing as well as they should do. That was clear tonight. They are the only ones who can deal with that. I was a player for 20 years and I know when your form is not good, there can be a multitude of reasons why confidence drops.

“The things you can deal with in front of you – how you work in training, how you prepare and how you deal with setback – are what define you.”
