Burley: Lampard under pressure to close gap

Competition for places can be found in every department at Chelsea which lead to Craig Burley saying that Frank Lampard has to get the Job at Chelsea now that Owner Roman Abrahamovich is splashing the cash.

The Former blue believes Lampard is under pressure to deliver expectations and no player is guaranteed an automatic place in the Chelsea first team even with their commercial rakings.

Speaking to ESPNFC, Craig Burley said: 

Anyone who thinks they are going to get in this team because they might sell a few jerseys is living in cloud cuckoo land because Lampard knows he is under pressure to close that gap, get Chelsea back to the top,” 

“Abramovich will expect it, he’s gone out with the cheque book already and given him Timo Werner – one of the best forwards in European football – and he’ll expect results.

“None of that frontline, or any other player in the Chelsea team, will play next season or beyond unless they are deserving of a place in the starting XI. It’s as simple as that.”
