The interim boss agrees that turning the club’s fortunes around will take time, but he denies that the players are unconcerned.
“We can’t change things overnight, but we better get there quickly,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“All the things to make you a nice team to play against, we did – and a good team can go 3-0 up against you”.
“I understand if fans think the players are not caring but I don’t believe that”.
“The lads want to do well for this club but they have to understand what that means, every day, and those standards are clear.”
There are a few of poor statistics surrounding Chelsea’s problems this season including only four wins in 23 games in 2023. Despite spending more than £600 million on player acquisition, the West London club are only nine points clear of the bottom three and 39 points behind table-topping Arsenal.
The loss against Arsenal is Chelsea’s sixth consecutive loss since Frank Lampard took over as interim manager.
