Frank Lampard’s job is safe for now, but the situation at Chelsea is under constant review.
Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester City on Sunday was their fourth loss in six Premier League games, which means that he now has the worst record of any manager since Roman Abramovich assumed ownership of the club.
That is not what the hierarchy at Stamford Bridge expected when they bankrolled the summer spending spree which saw more than £200 million of new talent arrive at the club.
For the moment, the club are prepared to give him more time to turn things round, but there are no shortage of potential candidates waiting to take over if they decide to pull the trigger on the 42-year old, amongst them Thomas Tuchel, Max Allegri, Brendan Rodgers and Ralph Hassenhüttl.
