Chelsea legend Petr Cech claims Frank Lampard needs to ‘find solutions with the players’ to end their nightmare of losing six games…
- Chelsea have not won any of their last nine games in all competitions
- Frank Lampard has lost all six of his games while interim manager of the Blues
- But Petr Cech still believes his former team-mate can change the club’s form
Petr Cech believes Chelsea can still finish the season on a high, but interim boss Frank Lampard needs to “find solutions” with his players.
The Blues are in abysmal form, losing their last six games in all competitions, all of which took place under Lampard’s tenure as interim manager.
But Chelsea are also dealing with the fact that they have not won any of their last nine games, most recently tasting three points in a 3-1 win at Leicester City in mid-March.
However, Cech, who won four league titles with the Blues and spent ten years with Lampard before the midfielder left in 2014, believes his former team-mate can still finish his interim period on a high note in the club’s last five games.
The goalkeeper, who has the most clean sheets in the Premier League with 202, spoke at the league’s Hall of Fame event in London on Wednesday night, where he was one of the inductees, and admitted it was difficult to put his former team through going through a difficult period. patch.

“It’s sad to see the club as they sit at the table, but there are a lot of experienced players going through difficult moments in their careers that way,” Cech said.
“I hope Frank Lampard joins the players and they find solutions for the upcoming games. Sometimes you just need one win or one positive result to turn a corner, so hopefully they achieve that.”
The Blues are reeling after their 3-1 defeat at London rivals Arsenal, their latest loss, on Tuesday night, where their performance was largely criticized by pundits and former players.
Former centre-back Frank Leboeuf described their defeat at the Emirates Stadium as ‘shameful, disgraceful, pathetic’.
He added: “I don’t know if the players understand what they are doing now. Besides polluting the club’s image, they also pollute their own image. What they show is the worst in the football world.
“You can be bad, anyone can be bad, anyone has been bad – that can happen. But if you show no character, no dedication in what you are trying to do, it shows that you are unprofessional.

“The players have shown the world that they don’t deserve the Chelsea shirt. I make the difference between club and team. The club is a big club. The team is a mess, shame on that club. I wanted to turn off the TV, I was so embarrassed.’
Meanwhile, former Blues striker Chris Sutton is concerned about Lampard’s reputation given his nightmarish record on his return to Stamford Bridge.
Cesc Fabregas used a funny anecdote to sum up his former club, saying: ‘When I was little I had a coach with 11 olives and he threw them on the table without any tactics. This is how I see Chelsea.’
Chelsea will play again on Saturday when they visit Bournemouth, which is threatened with relegation.
