LAMPARD’S JOB UNDER THREAT

Leicester City moved top of the Premier League after a 2-0 home win over Chelsea on Tuesday night.

The result leaves the Frank Lampard’s Blues down in ninth place – already nine points adrift of the Foxes. The poor league standing comes despite the club spending more than £200m in the summer.

Leicester, in turn, moved a point ahead of Manchester United- who play Fulham on Wednesday – albeit having played an extra game.

Manchester City, in third, are also in action on Wednesday as they host Aston Villa. City have played two fewer games and are just three back of the new leaders.

Back to Lampard, he was muted in his response to the defeat.

“[My future] is not my decision, that’s something that will always be there. You always understand some things are beyond your control,” he said.

“It’s not my decision, that’s something that will always be there. You always understand some things are beyond your control. Things you can control are going again, lifting the players and working hard. That, I can’t answer.

“It intensified for me a while ago – expectations at this club, right or wrong, are always high. I know we’re in a different position if you look at our squad today and the age in our squad, and look at the composition of our squad, it’s a new squad. I keep talking about transition, but when you perform like that it’s normal that people ask questions.”
