The fate of Chelsea former legend and present manager of the team, Frank Lampard may be hanging in the balance after yet another poor result from the Stamford Bridge outfit this evening.
The Blues as fondly called by their fans were reduced to rubbles as Manchester City FC ran riot in the early minutes of the game scoring through Guandogan.
This was followed by yet another goal by the England international, Foden , who doubled the scoreline.
However, Kevin De Bruyne ensured the whole three points were secured with a clinical set in to make it three before Hudson-Odoi gave Chelsea a consolation goal in the added time to change the face of the scoreline.
Since spending over £200 million in the window market, hopes were raised that the team would be competing for honours this season with the likes of Karl Harvetz, Hakim Ziyeck, goalkeeper Mendy and Timo Werner strengthening the squad.
With today’s loss, the team has further slipped down from the EPL table, while tongues have been wagging on whether the billionaire owner, Roman Abrahimovic would tolerate Lampard till the end of the season.
Chelsea are facing a serious task in the UEFA Champions League as the table topper in La Liga, Athletico Madrid are the next hurdle to face.
No doubt, the outcome of the two legged affair may make or mar the relationship between the capitalist owner and the legendary Lampard in a not too distant time.
