Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under huge pressure as his side continue poor run of form suffering another Premier League loss on Tuesday: 2-0 defeat from Leicester City.
There has been numerous rumours suggesting Lampard may be sacked sooner or later.
Here are six Blues players who might either suffer or benefit from Lampard’s sacking.
Mason Mount, Suffer
Mount has been impressing under Lampard, who he worked with at Derby in the 2018/19 season.
The 22-year-old has even been labelled ‘the teacher’s pet’ for both club and country due to his exemplary attitude.
Harry Redknapp famously predicted that Lampard would go “right to the very top” and Lampard recently made a similar claim, stating: “He has just turned 22. Imagine when he’s 27.”
Tammy Abraham, Suffer
Abraham impressed in the early stages of last season but has struggled for consistency.
And if it wasn’t for Lampard, the striker may not be playing for the Blues.
The 23-year-old is yet to prove that he should be Chelsea’s No 9 for years to come but there’s still time to showcase his talents.
Andreas Christensen, Suffer
Chelsea boss still seems to have a soft spot for Christensen, despite falling out of favour since the arrival of Thiago Silva.
And the west London side don’t seem to be willing to let him move on and much of that, is down to Lampard who still sees him as a part of his plans.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Benefit
Hudson-Odoi is not having enough game time this season, and may be frustrated.
Even though, Lampard is a big fan of the 20-year-old and persuaded him to sign a new bumper deal, the Chelsea boss is struggling to get the best from him.
Timo Werner, Benefit
Werner is seem to be suffering at his new club, as he has only scored 4 Premier League goals and provided 5 assists.
Lampard is struggling to get the best from him and it’s starting to take its toll on the 24-year-old, no matter how hard he tries.
Kepa Arrizabalaga. Benefit
Since the arrival of Edouard Mendy, Kepa is struggling for game time this season.
While Mendy has been reasonably solid, Chelsea are set to lose mega-money on the £71million they paid for the Spaniard.
And a change of manager, who boosts his confidence and offers him a chance to turn things around could pay off.
