Frank Lampard admits he is unsure whether Chelsea can recover from their dismal Premier League season and compete for honours again next season.

The Blues have had an awful season and languish in the 12th position on the Premier League table going into their final two games of the season. Over the course of 2022/23, the west London club has gone through three coaches, having fired Thomas Tuchel early on before replacing him with Graham Potter who also axed for Lampard.

Chelsea fans hope for a better season next year, but Lampard says it will be difficult to get them back in shape.

“The Premier League moves on very fast, everyone is moving on and trying to do the same thing and you see the emergence of Newcastle, Brighton and Aston Villa and these teams that are getting themselves in that equation now,” he says.

“My experience of football is that if you switch it off, it’s not easy to switch it on. It doesn’t always become an overnight remedy. It’s not going to be my responsibility but from my experience of being in a consistent performing club for many years, the moments you do switch off become very hard to switch it on. That will be the test next year.”

The Blues will play Manchester United on Thursday before wrapping off the season at home against Newcastle United on Sunday.
