There is speculation over Maurizio Sarri's position in the wake of Chelsea's 6-0 hammering at Manchester City. Though we firmly believe that he's the right man to take us forward, patience has never been one of Roman Abramovich's strong points.
"It's certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn't make me smile or anything different because my job is here", the former England global told British media. It appears as though his future will be decided once-and-for-all over this period, even if the club will hesitate to take action until the end of the ongoing campaign.
Lampard, Chelsea's all-time leading scorer with 211 goals, said he was focused on doing his best for Derby and backed Chelsea to bounce back quickly from the defeat, which pushed them down to sixth in the table.
However, while the title may be gone, there is still plenty to play for in the remaining months of the season, so do Chelsea stick by keeping faith with the "Sarri-ball" project or twist hoping for the bounce of a new face in charge?
Although there are still twelve games left in the Premier League season, the next stretch for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola is their most important by far. "But let's not forget they were up against a great Manchester City team - and I also had some good times there as a player".
The result of the game means that the Blues have now conceded 10 goals in their last two away games after the 4-0 humiliation by Bournemouth. Yet, Sarri has done little to stem the tide, steadfastly refusing to change his approach to the game.
"It is one of the worst nights in my career".
"The only thing I can say to the fans is "sorry", because it's not acceptable and I feel sorry for all of them".
