LITTLE TIME TO SOLVE ‘BIG DIFFICULTIES’ AT CHELSEA SAYS LAMPARD – Interim Chelsea Coach Frank Lampard understands how difficult his job is
Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, stressed that there is little time to solve the club’s ‘big difficulties’ as he looks for his first win since taking over in interim charge.
Chelsea, who are 11th in the league standings and at risk of their worst domestic league finish in nearly 30 years, will look to end their seven-game winless run in all competitions against Brentford. Chelsea are five points behind their west London rivals, who have played a game more, as Lampard seeks for his first win since returning to Stamford Bridge following Graham Potter’s departure.
Chelsea defender Reece James and midfielder Mason Mount will miss the rest of the season due to injuries, Lampard also said. James has been ruled out with a hamstring injury while Mount has been sidelined with an abdominal problem, although he has an outside chance of returning for the last game of the season.
