Avram Grant has layed a two-point plan for Frank Lampard to avoid sack.
The Blues have spent over £200million in the summer transfer window and are still languishing in the mid-table.
Chelsea suffered its fourth defeat in six games under Frank Lampard and it looks like Abramovich could swing the axe very soon.
“What I can say to Frank and the others at the club is be patient, and more than this do whatever is necessary to do that’s for sure,” Avram Grant said.
“Two things: never lose it even when things are going well, don’t lose your fighting spirit at the highest level.
“And second, don’t lose what you have here [points at head] you need to think right and look for solutions.
“If you do that then everything will be okay because the quality is there and there is a potential like there was [at Chelsea] in my time.”
He added: “About the current situation I can say only this. You need to be strong when things are not going well, when things are going well everyone is a genius and knows what to do.
“But in the situation like this when things aren’t going well you need to be strong, look for solutions and show a lot about your character.”
