After another dismal performance that has left them in 8th, below David Moyes’s West Ham, haven spent almost £200million more, Chelsea Manager, Frank Lampard has said that Chelsea are not ready to compete for the title.
Chelsea took on Leicester City, hoping to gain points and climb up the table, but it was not to be as two sumptuous goals by Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison condemned the Blue to yet another defeat, their fifth in the last 8 Premier League outings.
After the game, Lampard who oversaw a £230million windfall in the summer, when Roman Abramovich brought in Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell to strengthen the squad so they could mount a title challenge this term, said this team was not ready.
He said: “I am good at handling pressure. I took this job knowing there would be difficult times as it’s not a club ready to compete.”
“We had a transfer ban, we had young players, we had new players. I understand the expectations of this club, whether I think it’s right or wrong. We are not in the same position Chelsea were when we were winning titles. The consistency, the robustness, the level of experience of winning Premier Leagues is not the same.”
