Chelsea Legend Frank Lampard has admitted his old club’s problem is more than just a blip.
The former England international claims the blues problem runs deep but believes they showed signs of improvement against Stoke City. The blues lost 1-0 at stoke City, despite controlling possession during the game and were condemned to their seventh league defeat of the season.
“This is far from a blip, they are losing games regularly,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“They need to turn the corner very quickly. They can’t dwell on it, they need to get out of it and put it to bed.”
The 37-year-old – who now plays his football for New York City in the MLS – believes Chelsea showed signs against Stoke that they are on the right path.
“I saw glimpses of what they need to turn the corner,” he said. “I couldn’t fault their performance, they just didn’t get that little bit of luck to get the result.
“They need to get results, simple as that.”
Lampard also urged Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho to stay positive despite the increasing pressure.
“He will get to work in the week, but there is only so much he can do in training and tactically,” he said.
“He has to be positive because there is so much being thrown at Chelsea, there are players out of form and low on confidence, you can see that.
“They need everything to be behind them in a positive way and look forward.”
The blues will return to action after the international break and will be hoping things will be different onwards.
