– Chris Sutton is predicting a bad ending for Chelsea after their unimpressive turn of results
– The former Chelsea forward believes the Blues are currently going through challenges
– Frank Lampard’s side are gradually losing grip on the Premier League title this campaign
Chelsea legend Chris Sutton has predicted a bad ending for Frank Lampard with the way things are going with the Blues.
The former Blues striker believes the club are currently in crisis with the run of five games with just a win.
The west London club had one point in the season gone 14 matches without a defeat in all competitions but it seems their titles chances are going up in the smoke.
Defeats to Everton, Wolves and Arsenal in the month of December has seen Lampard’s side go six points behind league leaders Liverpool and have dropped to sith position.
And Sutton is worried about what would become of the English boss as the hope of landing a league title is gradually drifting away.
Sutton told BBC Radio Five Live quoted by Goal:
“At the moment, they are a crisis club because they are underperforming.
“They are flat and that’s why Frank needs to get a few wins under his belt and extremely quickly because it can, as we know, turn ugly at Chelsea.
“Whether we like it or not, this is a totally different season for Frank. The pressure is on; he has spent the big money. Now the pressure will build.
“I don’t want to go too early on Chelsea and Frank because if they win three on the spin, they will be up into second place and we’ll be saying ‘can they win the title again?’ and that’s the way it is.
“I don’t think Chelsea can win the title. They have to get back to a way of playing where they really find their rhythm.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Frank Lampard believes Chelsea would have got the result against Aston Villa if it were to be a month ago and admitted his side are going through a difficult period, Mirror.
