Frank Lampard should be SACKED by Chelsea after Monday’s 2-0 defeat by Manchester United.
This is according to angry Blues supporter Sam, who phoned talkSPORT to rant about the boss ‘getting away with murder’ at Stamford Bridge.
Monday’s loss means Chelsea are now only safe in the top four by a single point, having appeared comfortable just weeks ago.
Spurs are the Blues’ closest challengers ahead of their visit to the Bridge on Saturday afternoon – with full commentary of the London derby LIVE on talkSPORT as part of GameDay!
Sheffield United are then a further point behind in sixth with Man United themselves another point behind, on 38 from 26 games.
Chelsea have still won only ONE Premier League game this year – beating Burnley on January 11 – drawing three and losing two of their remaining matches, and it’s hard to see how Lampard will guide his struggling side out their rut.
Nonetheless, he is still being strongly backed by the Stamford Bridge faithful, who remain delighted that a club legend is in charge.
Blues supporter Sam, however, is not happy – and he made his feelings known on Monday night’s Sports Bar.
“Frank Lampard is getting away with MURDER down at the Bridge,” his rant began.
“Every game he comes onto the middle of the pitch and claps the fans and they sing his name – it’s not good enough!

Did Man United man Maguire deliberately kick out at Chelsea striker Batshuayi?
“No fans are applying any pressure to him and he’s basically got a free run to do exactly what he pleases.
“He’s not making the right decisions, he’s not picking the right team, and I don’t think he knows what he is doing, to be honest.
“I really don’t believe Frank Lampard knows what he is doing.”
When co-host Perry Groves attempted to argue that Chelsea were the better team for the first 25 minutes of Monday’s clash, only to then run out of ideas, Sam interjected: “Run out of ideas?! We haven’t got any ideas to start with!
“We played three defensive-minded midfielders. [Maurizio] Sarri got all the stick in the world for playing [N’Golo] Kante out of position, but when Lampard does it no one cares.
“Everyone hated Jorginho down at Stamford Bridge – he was the worst player we had ever signed – now Lampard is there he has become the greatest thing and everyone loves him.
Was Harry Maguire lucky to escape red card for kicking Chelsea striker Batshuayi?
“He is getting away with murder!”
Then it was time for the big one – should Lampard be sacked?
Sam struggled to reply to this question.
But then asked by Andy Goldstein if he’d want Lampard out if he was NOT a club legend, the frustrated fan found it easy to respond.
“I want him and that joker Jody Morris to be given the boot – the pair of them don’t have a clue!”
