Chelsea were defeated and dominated by Manchester City 3-1 on Sunday and experienced their fourth defeat in the last six Premier League games. In the midst of this scenario, the position of coach Frank Lampard is “under strong threat”, as reported by The Athletic.

Although it is a “fluid situation”, in which there is no “exact deadline for when he can be fired”, the vehicle mentions that the Blues have started to analyze alternatives in case the team’s bad phase persists.

Commanded since the middle of 2019 by Lampard, the Blues currently appear in eighth place with 26 points, seven less than Liverpool and Manchester United, who appear at the top and with one game less. His next appointment in the Premier League will be on January 15, when he will go to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.
