Frank Lampard receives sack message over 3-1 lost to Man City

Frank Lampard releases Chelsea's 21-man squad for Champions League

The Blues manager’s job is under threat after the heavy 3-1 defeat by Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday left his side eighth in the Premier League table.

Frank Lampard could be sacked by Chelsea following their heavy 3-1 defeat by Manchester City on Sunday, according to Alan Shearer.

Chelsea were blown away in the first half by City at Stamford Bridge with Pep Guardiola’s free-flowing side racing into a three-goal lead by the break.

The visitors looked streets ahead of Lampard’s side and Ilkay Gundogan produced a smart turn and finish to put them 1-0 up.

Phil Foden turned in Kevin De Bruyne’s cross to double their lead and it was three after just 34 minutes when the Belgian playmaker scored after Raheem Sterling hit the post on the break.

The hosts improved slightly in the second half as City entered cruise control to see the game out and Callum Hudson-Odoi finished Kai Havertz’s cross to grab an injury-time consolation, but the result saw pressure mount on Lampard.

Chelsea, who were being touted as title contenders in early December, are eighth in the Premier League after losing four and winning just one of their last six matches.
