Frank Lampard favourite to lose job next after Leicester defeat as Thomas Tuchel links to Chelsea strengthen January 19, 2021 – Posted in: Soccer

Frank Lampard’s position remains precarious at Chelsea and he is now the favourite to be the next Premier League boss to be sacked.

The Blues are on a woeful run of form in the Premier League and have dropped to eighth in the top-flight standings.

They appeared to have eased the pressure with victory over Fulham on Saturday, but Tuesday night’s defeat at Leicester ended this relief.

Lampard just cannot fix Chelsea’s problems right now

Reports suggest that if poor results continue then Lampard could be dismissed sooner rather than later, with former Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and ex-PSG manager Thomas Tuchel linked with the Stamford Bridge hot-seat.

Now, the latest sack race odds have Lampard as the favourite to be dismissed next.

He has been given the short odds of 4/5 to be given his marching orders with Newcastle boss Steve Bruce second-favourite at 2/1.

While Lampard’s plight may be worsening, there is a fresh bout of positivity in north London with finally Arsenal picking up some points in recent matches.

Back in December, Mikel Arteta was expected to be sacked by the Gunners as they fell to only six points clear of the relegation zone, but a positive upturn in form has shot the club up to only two points behind Chelsea.

Sure, Arteta is not completely safe in his job, but he’s now 25/1 to be sacked rather than favourite in the top-flight.
