Lampard must meet expectations or he’ll be out’ – Abramovich expects Chelsea title challenge, says Burley

The former Blues midfielder believes that, on the back of a summer of elaborate spending, pressure is on to compete for the grandest of prizes

Frank Lampard has been warned that, on the back of an elaborate summer spending spree, he will need to live up to Roman Abramovich’s expectations or “he’ll be out" with Craig Burley claiming pressure is building at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues invested nothing in two windows as they battled to see a transfer embargo lifted. The Premier League giants are now making up for lost time, with Lampard being freed to make several big-money additions to his squad.

Deals have been tied up for Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva, with the promise of more to come as Chelsea close in on Kai Havertz and a new first-choice goalkeeper. The hope is that fresh faces will help to push the Blues back into Premier League title contention.
