Lampard Chelsea future in doubt after storming out of Stamford Bridge

There's reports Frank Lampard stormed away from Stamford Bridge after not making the starting line-up for victory over Swansea City. The Mail on Sunday says Lampard's long-term future at Chelsea is in jeopardy after he was dropped and appeared to storm away from the Stamford Bridge pitch.

The 33-year-old midfielder was an unused substitute in Chelsea's 4-1 win against Swansea and seemed to react badly as new manager Andre Villas-Boas begins to make his mark on the club's old guard.

Lampard disappeared into the dressing room before the end of the second half after teenager Josh McEachran was preferred to replace Raul Meireles in the 83rd minute.

Lampard has now been left on the bench for three of the past four Chelsea games - and he was taken off at half-time in the other, the 3-1 defeat at Manchester United.
