Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley believes manager Frank Lampard's job is in doubt going into the New Year.

Burley believes Lampard is now back in the firing line at Stamford Bridge, highlighting how little patience Blues owner Roman Abramovich has afforded managers in the past.

“[Lampard's] got players out of form, he's got players that are not fully fit, and that's a problem," he said on ESPN FC.

“They have gone from looking one of the paciest, quickest sides in the Premier League to one of the most pedestrian.

“That is a huge issue for him because you may have noticed with this owner Roman Abramovich, he doesn't suffer inconsistency, bad results, no matter who it is.

“So let me be clear, Lampard is back on the chopping board currently as we speak."
