Having spent well over 200 milion on new signings during the summer transfer window, not many Chelsea fans expected their team to be lying 9th in the league after 17 games.
Such have led to speculations that blues coach Lampard is on borrowed time, should he not turn things around quickly at Chelsea.
But how much time he has left is a very big question, as Chelsea doesn't have the easiest of Epl fixtures coming their way.
I will thus be looking at the blues next 10 Epl fixtures,
Fulham vs Chelsea (January 16th)
The blues will take on relegation threatened Fulham who currently lay in 18th position on the Epl log.
The London derby wouldn't be much of a hard test for Frank Lampard's team.
Leicester City vs Chelsea (January 19th)
Next up will be another away trip to King power stadium to face fourth placed Leciester City.
This should be another tough encounter for Frank Lampard's Chelsea team.
Chelsea vs Wolves (January 27th)
It will be another series of touch games back to back for the blues, as they will follow up the game to Leciester with a home game against Wolves.
The reverse fixture was one which ended in a defeat for Frank Lampard's team, as Wolves were 2-1 winners.
Chelsea vs Burnley (January 30th)
The blues will take on Burnley at Stamford bridge, in a relatively easy game for Frank Lampard's team.
Spurs vs Chelsea (February 3rd)
Frank Lampard's Chelsea will kick off the month of February with an away trip to Jose Mourinho's Spurs.
The reverse fixture ended in a 0:0 draw, and will prove to be a hard fixture for Chelsea on paper.
Sheffield United vs Chelsea (Feb 6th)
Next will be another away trip to Sheffield United three days later.
The reverse fixture ended in a 4-1 victory for Frank Lampard's team at Stamford bridge.
Chelsea vs Newcastle United (Feb 13th)
The blues will then take on Newcastle United at Stamford bridge, whom they defeated by 2:0 in the reverse fixture.
Southampton vs Chelsea (Feb 20th)
Next up will be an away trip to a relatively impressive Southampton side, at St Mary's.
Recall the saints played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Stamford bridge in the reverse fixture.
Chelsea vs Man United (Feb 27th)
The blues will then take on the red devils at Stamford bridge 7 days later in what will be a key game for Frank Lampard.
The reverse fixture ended in a 0:0 draw at Old Trafford last year.
Chelsea vs Everton (March 6th)
A round up of the blues next 10 Epl fixtures, will be a home game against Everton at Stamford bridge.
Recall that Carlo Anchelotti's Everton ended Chelsea's 19 game unbeaten run, with a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture.
See Chelsea fixtures.
Will Lampard still be Chelsea's manager after these 10 Epl fixtures? Please do well to like and follow thanks.
