According to former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich should have sacked former boss Frank Lampard much earlier

Cundy believes the team has improved defensively under Thomas Tuchel and believes Lampard should have been sacked after the 3-3 draw at West Brom.

“Tuchel has changed the shape of the team,” Cundy told talkSPORT.

“Defensively, we’re far more solid – we don’t look like we’re going to concede in every single attack.

“He has revolutionized Callum Hudson-Odoi at right wing-back – he’s played in a role I’ve never seen him play before, and I’m guessing he’s never played it at youth team level.

“He has got Marcos Alonso back in from the cold; the last game he played was West Brom away in a 3-3 draw (last September). It is difficult to argue that Frank should have kept his job after that.

“The new manager’s job is to come in and get results. Were Chelsea underperforming under Frank? Yes. Our performances were lousy.”
