Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich sent Frank Lampard sack message following Aston Villa draw

Chelsea are "far from a crisis" and rumours regarding head coach Frank Lampard's long-term future at Stamford Bridge is far too premature, according to former midfielder Andy Townsend. The Blues have only won one of their past five Premier League matches, suffering three defeats in that time, after drawing 1-1 with Dean Smith's in-form Aston Villa on Monday night as Anwar El Ghazi cancelled out Olivier Giroud's header. That means if Liverpool beat Newcastle at St James' Park on Wednesday, Chelsea could slip nine points behind the league leaders after 16 matches. Speaking on Chelsea situation right now, Townsend declared: "I think when Chelsea were having good spells a few weeks ago, they were able to get in front and create substantial leads in various games. As Frank said there, there's a little bit missing at the moment. It's not serious. It's far from a crisis despite the fact that their current form isn't great. "The team showed today there's a very competitive spirit in the camp, they're capable of creating chances. I thought [Christian] Pulisic played very well again for them, looked very dangerous when he gets the ball at his feet. There's still a lot to look forward to in 2021 if you're a Chelsea fan."
