'I can handle the pressure,' says Lampard after Chelsea lose again at Leicester * Fifth defeat in eight Premier League games for struggling side * ‘There are players not playing as well as they should be’
The pressure is mounting on Frank Lampard after Chelsea slipped to another defeat, away at Leicester on Tuesday evening. Goals from Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison sent the Foxes to the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 victory, Chelsea’s fifth defeat in eight league games. The Blues had won their last two games, though a 4-0 FA Cup win over League Two Morecambe and an unconvincing 1-0 League victory at 10-man Fulham were results to delay talk about the manager’s immediate fate, rather than quash it altogether.
