Frank's Fall From Grace – Reader’s Voice

Frank has impressed as the Chelsea manager and has huge potential to be a success, but this is undoubtedly his most testing time at the helm. There is more pressure on him now than at any point in the season. He also needs to be careful and not just hold his nerve but also to choose his words and actions carefully.

Chelsea have become so reliant on Tammy Abraham, a situation that has now come to bite him. Given what the lack of game time to his other striking options have done to his progression in Tammy's absence. Failing to sign a striker and then showing his frustration could make is current forward options feel a void of confidence from the young manager.

If more playing time was invested in Olvier Giroud, a World Cup winner and Michy Batshuayi a player who has scored 16 goals in 29 games for Belgium, maybe these two would take more responsibility in front of goals.

In the summer there was little expectation, few predicted that they would make the Champions League places, with many accepting that the loss of Eden Hazard and the transfer ban would leave them somewhere between eighth and fifth. It was generally considered that this season would be a free shot.

The icing out of experience players is something that Lampard can do without going forward. Showing inclusiveness and utilising every ounce of your squad is critical to achieving greatness as a manager. Being versatile in terms of playing style could be were the former Chelsea midfielder has met his Achilles heel. What we can detect is that life as a manager at a top club is not easy.
