USA- Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has admitted he is worried about his side’s poor form after losing 2-0 to Leicester City on Tuesday.
Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison both scored in the first half to consign the Blues to defeat at the King Power Stadium.
The result leaves Chelsea in eighth place, five points away from Liverpool in the final Champions League qualification spot having played a game more.
It is also a fifth defeat in their last eight Premier League outings, a torrid run of form that has heightened the pressure on Lampard.
“We won against Fulham without playing brilliant, from that we come and lose a game so it’s a small step backwards,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“I am worried about the slump – from the form we were in to get so quickly into the form we’re now in and we’ve had some wins, but five losses in eight isn’t where we want to be.
“It takes character to get out of that – I’m not against the lads in the dressing room because they’re disappointed. It’s a young team and it’s a big lesson that if you come off it and think you’re fine then you’ve got to get yourself out of the hole.”
