Frank Lampard set a bad record after 118 years of appearing at Chelsea
After suffering a humiliating defeat to Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals, Frank Lampard has set a dismal record at Chelsea that hasn’t been seen in 118 years.
According to the Mirror, Lampard has now lost all four games since taking over as manager at Stamford Bridge, replacing Graham Potter.
The 44-year-old coach has become the first Chelsea manager in 118 years to lose all four matches in charge of the team. Chelsea lost 1-0 to Wolves in Lampard’s first game as manager, followed by a 2-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals at the Bernabeu.
Last weekend, Chelsea suffered a 1-2 defeat at home to Brighton in the Premier League and were then knocked out of the Champions League with a 0-2 defeat to Real Madrid in the second leg at Stamford Bridge.
Lampard will hope that this unfortunate run of results will come to an end on April 26 when Chelsea host Brentford in their next game.
After that, The Blues have games against Arsenal, Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest, Manchester City and Newcastle.
This is the first time Chelsea has lost four consecutive matches in all competitions since November 1993. Lampard lost his first game in charge of Chelsea 0-4 to Man Utd in 2019, but his team went on to win consecutive games and finished the season in the top 4.
However, Lampard was sacked in January 2021 and was unemployed for a year before taking over at Everton. Despite helping Everton avoid relegation last season, Lampard was eventually sacked by the Toffees in January 2023. Chelsea are currently languishing in 11th place in the Premier League and will not be able to compete in any European competitions next season.
