Frank Lampard Blames Complacency For Chelsea's Poor Form

Frank Lampard insists that he can handle the pressure at Chelsea job.

Leicester City put two goals past Chelsea to go top of the table on Tuesday night.

Lampard’s men had a few chances but were overall lacklustre like they have been in recent times. When asked about his future, the Blues boss said, “I can’t control it. I’ve been asked before, I understand it, it’s the expectations of this club.

“It’s a developing team but I can’t get caught up in the reaction. I took this job knowing we would have difficult times. We just have to fight. Where everything was rosy in mid-December, it isn’t so rosy now. I am good at handling pressure.”

Chelsea have now collected just 7 points out of their last possible 24. When questioned about the team’s form, Lampard replied, “We were in a really good place in December, second in the league and two points from the top.

“Maybe complacency set it. There’s only one way out of it which is hard work. Today Leicester were in better form than us.

“It is clearly concerning. It is a period we are not happy with, other clubs have been in that period. All we can think about is getting through the period, working hard. The important thing is the players bounce back. This is the cut-throat nature of what it is.

“The players have to keep their heads up but also keep their eyes open and review the game and see there was an energy in the Leicester team we didn’t have. You cannot be sluggish and slow because it won’t work against a team like Leicester that are firing.”
