Frank Lampard is under ‘serious threat’ of losing his job as Chelsea manager, the latest reports claim.

The Blues suffered their fourth defeat in seven matches on Sunday as Manchester City won 3-1 at Stamford Bridge, to leave Lampard’s side eighth in the Premier League.

Chelsea were severely outplayed by their opponents, despite City entering the match with a host of players absent due to coronavirus.

It was a humbling day for Lampard, and the Athletic say the defeat has resulted in Chelsea starting to consider managerial alternatives – although it is stated there is no time frame on any possible sacking.

But the latest sack race odds suggest it won’t be long before Lampard is shown the door, with the former England international the 11/10 favourite to leave his job next.

Sunday’s defeat has seen Lampard shoot up to favourite in the sack race, moving ahead of Chris Wilder whose Sheffield United side are STILL searching for their first league win of the season.

While Lampard’s plight may be worsening, there is a fresh bout of positivity in north London with Arsenal back on a winning run.

It seems the good times are back at Arsenal – but how long will they last?

Mikel Arteta was expected to be sacked by the Gunners as they fell to only six points clear of the relegation zone, but three successive wins have shot the club up to only six points off the top four at the start of 2021.

Sure, Arteta is not completely safe in his job, but he’s now 10/1 to be sacked rather than favourite in the top-flight.
