We now know that Graham Potter wasn’t the only problem at Chelsea thanks to the drab Liverpool draw. Some of the Blues’ inadequate and immature stars basically negatively combine to create a bunch of individuals.

Frank Lampard has a roster partially comprised of prima donnas along with many seemingly self-serving athletes to galvanise. It is questionable if they actually deserve that title at the moment. If you haven’t figured it out, Potter was part of the problem or accentuated it. Yet the players on the pitch ultimately let the former Brighton & Hove Albion head coach down. Yeah, some of his choices, policies and tactics were rotten, but he was given next to nothing on the pitch.

Don’t get me wrong, there are a few real gems in this team; some standout personnel will hopefully become polished with Lampard’s tutelage. In actuality, several of those who let Potter down could also come good. N’Golo Kante’s influence and example can surely only help there, too. The 44-year-old, however, has to really focus on a miraculous Champions League run to salvage an atrocious campaign. Maybe redemption for some Blues can occur on that stage.

A Chelsea legend returns to steer the ship until end of season

‘Super Frank’ is back in the Blues hotseat. And it seems as though the pressure heaped upon bosses on Fulham Road is more intense than ever. Scrutiny certainly appears to have intensified since the Chels’ icon was last running the show at the Bridge. And it was pretty passionate back in 2021 when Lampard and Roman Abramovich were respectively in charge. Now the ex-England star is paired with Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali as the face and brain of the west London outfit; the latter pair must take a more prudent and considered approach.

Upon completing his comeback to his footballing home, Lampard spoke to the media ahead of the Wolverhampton Wanderers match on Saturday afternoon. First of all, the retired midfielder proclaimed the decision to return to ‘his club’ as ‘easy‘. The caretaker boss also declared his delight at being back at CFC.
