Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under serious pressure to keep his job at the club after the latest league defeat, a convincing 3-1 loss to visitors Manchester City.

Lampard and his Chelsea players were well beaten during the Premier League clash played at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening. Chelsea were outfought and outclassed by the Pep Guardiola-led Manchester City team to leave Frank Lampard in danger of losing his job as the Blues manager. The Manchester City defeat means that Frank Lampard has now overseen a run of one win in the last five league games at Chelsea.

Frank Lampard will need to produce a consistent run of result in the upcoming games starting with the FA Cup clash with lowly clubMorecambe in the coming week if he wants to keep his job as the Chelsea manager.

The Blues can't afford any form of slipups when they face Morecambe in the FA Cup on Sunday evening. After that FA Cup third round tie with the League Two team at home, the Blues will travel the short distance across West London to face rivals and hosts Fulham in what would be their next game in the Premier League. For now, Chelsea have a lot of work to do to catch up with the pacesetters on the league standings. After the loss to Manchester City at the weekend, Chelsea dropped down two places to eighth spot on the league table. However, the Blues are three points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth and final Champions League place though the North London giants have played one game more than Chelsea. On their part, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are in fifth spot on the table after the big away win at Chelsea. The Citizens are four points off the top spot having played one game more than Liverpool at the league summit.
