Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has admitted his future at the club is out of his hands.
This follows a 2-0 defeat at Leicester City on Tuesday night, a result that saw the Blues lose ground in the race to qualify for Europe.
Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison scored for the Foxes in the first half, to inflict Chelsea’s fifth league defeat in their last eight fixtures.
Speculation is growing as to whether owner Roman Abramovich still believes Lampard is the right man to lead his expensively assembled squad.

“I can’t control it. I have been asked about it over the last few weeks. I understand it and it is the expectation of the club whether it is right or wrong.
“I took the job knowing that there will be difficult times because it is not a club ready to compete. We have had a ban, we have young players, we have new players that we can see are striving for form and to be settled into this team.
“At the minute we have to fight,” Lampard said in his post-match press conference.
