Chelsea fans to unfurl new Frank Lampard banner on Shed End amid sack talk

Chelsea fans are to put a new banner up in the Shed End, backing under-pressure boss Frank Lampard.

The Blues have won just one of their last six Premier League matches with reports suggesting Roman Abramovich is ready to show Lampard the door.

Chelsea return to action on Sunday as they host League Two Morecambe in the FA Cup, giving Lampard a much-needed chance to ease pressure.

Lampard is a Chelsea legend following his playing days at Stamford Bridge with fans clearly still appreciating their manager.

And supporters have donated in order to get a banner made, that will be hung in Stamford Bridge’s Shed End.

The banner, which reads ‘In Frank we trust’, will not be up in time for the clash with Morecambe, though is set to be in place soon.

The pressure has been piled on Lampard after a summer of splashing out with the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz arriving at the club.

Recent results have seen the Blues drop to ninth in the Premier League despite many tipping them to challenge for the title.

On the challenges he faces, Lampard said: "In terms of myself, I have to say I came into this job expecting pressure and I have to say my own personality means that I'm weirdly quite strange.

"You probably have to be to do this job at times, but when things are going well, I put more pressure on myself.

"I don't like things going well because I worry what's around the corner, I worry about complacency.

“With the unbeaten run, I was constantly under pressure myself with people telling me how great we were.

"Now, I find this more challenging in a good way in terms of my job because I can find out more about myself, I can find out more about every member of the team, every member of the staff and it actually makes my job more exciting.

"Now, of course I understand the pressure heightens because I understand the expectations of a club like this but I love doing what I'm doing. I never expected an easy run in this job.

“I’ve come to a huge club in Premier League and world football in the process of a rebuild. That was never going to be an easy run. So I have to expect these situations."
