There are plenty of reports flying around social media today off the back of another Chelsea defeat.
As Frank Lampard’s side lost 2-0 to Leicester City last night, the heat has ramped up and you expected to hear the rumours circulating right away.
Chelsea are also looking to sign a top class new centre back this summer, find out who is on the shortlist HERE!
The pressure was already on Lampard before this game, massively. But things have got worse, and they could easily get a lot worse for the Blues boss in the coming hours/days.
One report caught my eye from Pipe Sierra of WinSportsTV just now. He claims player unrest, as we have heard whispers of before during this saga.
Simon Johnson of The Athletic hinted at player unrest in an answer on the Athletic interactive session yesterday.
Thought this reply from Chelsea reporter Simon Johnson on The Athletic’s Q&A thread was with telling.
Basically confirmation of what I have suspected for a while, that something (or a series of events) happened which has been a cause for the current malaise. pic.twitter.com/POBN6H8j3i

Sierra claims that it is the wish of some players “that Frank Lampard does not continue” as Chelsea manager.
He says the issues are due to poor staff management, frequent improvisation and the lack of a tactical idea.
Not great reading at all for the club legend, but we will have to wait and see what happens.
