Frank Lampard eliminates connections with Chelsea's work

Frank Lampard has downplayed reports that he would be a contender to succeed Maurizio Sarri if Chelsea's manager had been fired.

Lampard is Chelsea's best scorer, he has won the honor of every club for 13 years as a player at Stamford Bridge and is impressive when he makes his coaching bow with the Derby Championship.

Sarri's position could be in danger after Sunday's 6-0 defeat at Manchester City, another of Lampard's former clubs, while the Blues slid to sixth in the Premier League.

"My work is here," Lampard told a Derby press conference.

"We are working very hard and my thoughts are on Ipswich Town on Wednesday and Brighton on Saturday."

Lampard supported Chelsea "as a club" to show resistance and respond to the humiliating defeat, the worst in the league for almost 28 years.

The former Blues midfielder said: "With my Chelsea hat, 13 years as a player, you have a feeling for it and it's not nice, it's not easy, it does not happen to Chelsea so much when it does it is a shock.

"But they are going against an incredible team and I also had a bit of time in Manchester City, I have feelings for them, and the work done by Pep Guardiola and their incredible team is something special.

"It was a tough day for Chelsea, and with all the best teams, it's important that you come back strong, regardless of the kind of defeat, what makes the best teams resilience and Chelsea is like a club. 39; will have ".

Chelsea are now in sixth place in the Premier League, under Arsenal with goals scored, ahead of what could be a decisive period for Sarri before the end of February.

Chelsea trained as expected on Monday, with players involved in Sunday's match taking part in a recovery session. There was also a group meeting, which is a normal and not exceptional event.

The Blues will face Malmo in the first leg of the European Championships of the last League of Europa League on Thursday.

A resurgent Manchester United will visit the Stamford Bridge in the fifth round of the FA Cup next Monday, before returning with Malmo on 21 February and then the final of the Carabao Cup with Manchester City at Wembley on 24 February.

Chelsea will then face Tottenham in the Premier League on 27 February.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta declared the hammering of the city unacceptable and apologized to the fans.

N & Golo Kante said that the defeat is "difficult to accept" and the result of a "collective failure".

Defender Azpilicueta, who was given torrid time by Raheem Sterling, twice City goalkeeper, said on the club's website, chelseafc.com: "It's hard to find words to describe my feeling after the game.

"It's one of the worst nights of my career, it's very frustrating, it's very disappointing.

"When you lose 6-0, everyone has to accept that they have not played well – the only thing I can say to the fans is sorry, because it's not acceptable, and I'm sorry for all of them."

And it was the Blues' third defeat in four Premier League games, following Arsenal's 2-0 defeat and Bournemouth's 4-0 win. The only relief during that time was a 5-0 victory over the Huddersfield fund at home.

They were in trouble after only four minutes on Sunday while Sterling opened the markings. Sergio Aguero then dedicated himself to a hat-trick and Ilkay Gundogan climbed on the step before Sterling completed the course with his second.

It could also have been worse for Chelsea as Aguero missed one morning and hit the bar too.

Kante said on chelseafc.com: "It's hard to explain, they've outgrown us, it's been a collective failure.

"It's a big disappointment and we have to react, we have a lot to learn from this, and we hope not to repeat the same mistakes in the future."
