Frank Lampard’s Title Race: Arsenal-Chelsea Preview


Frank Lampard is without a win since his return to Chelsea (Picture: Getty Images) and the current iteration of the Blues are not the Chelsea we have been used to in recent years, with a team 19th in the form guide over the last six games. Rob Holding could look like Paolo Maldini against an anaemic Blues attack which has one goal in seven games. Lampard’s recent penchant for 5-4-1 – an understandably conservative formation in the Champions League against Real Madrid but baffling at home to a Brentford team who hadn’t won in six – has not helped the dire record. With Raheem Sterling handed a thankless and lonely task up front, the Bees, like Madrid, left with a 2-0 victory.

Mikel Arteta must know how Frank Lampard feels, as he admitted on Monday, ‘We’re not in a great moment are we?’ Arteta believes Arsenal can still win the title and they must make it six wins in seven games against the Blues if they are to have any chance of doing so. The last trip to the Emirates in August 2021 saw a 2-0 win for Chelsea, with Romelu Lukaku on the scoresheet and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang among the Arsenal subs. Frank Lampard has only managed three wins from 23 league games for Everton and Chelsea this season, while Roy Hodgson has four wins from six games in charge of Crystal Palace. Despite this, Arteta insists ‘It’s not over!’ and believes Arsenal can still win the Premier League title.
