Chelsea are not doing well recently, and all competitions have suffered three straight draws, and coach Lampard has also suffered some doubts. Former Blues midfielder Essien expressed support for Lampard in an interview with Goal. He believes that the fans need to give the coach some time to get the team back on track.
Essien said: "Lampard is a member of Chelsea, he knows the team well, he knows what he should do, he will also get the support of everyone on the team, I think he has done well so far. Chelsea achieved a good result last season. This is not an easy result. The fans will obviously raise the demands of the team, so it is not easy. He is doing his best."
"Football is full of ups and downs. Fans must understand this and firmly support the team instead of venting their dissatisfaction after every bad result. The job of a head coach is not easy, so you must be patient and then Hope they will do better. There are many good players joining Chelsea, so they have to prove their strength as people expect."
"The young players in the team did a good job, but I don’t know if they can play well in the Chelsea I played for at the time. I’m joking, I like young players like Mount very much, but they I also need to continuously improve my performance in the team."
