‘Lampard under pressure after Werner & Ziyech deals’ – Chelsea expectation rising, warns Sutton

The former Blues striker admits a club legend has done "a good job" at Stamford Bridge, but big spending means more will be expected of him in 2020-21

Chelsea’s investment in Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, with the promise of more to come, will see Frank Lampard fall under more pressure at Stamford Bridge next season, says Chris Sutton.

The Blues turned to a familiar face for inspiration in the summer of 2019 when finding themselves in a tricky situation.

Maurizio Sarri had walked away from the dugout after just one year at the helm, while a two-window transfer embargo had been imposed on the club.
