​Lampard admits Chelsea future out of his control: Expectations are high

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard admits he cannot control what happens to him in the coming days or weeks.

The club legend is now in danger of losing his job after a disastrous run of results.

The Blues have lost five of the past eight matches in the Premier League.

They find themselves in mid table and well adrift of the teams challenging for the league.

On his future, Lampard told reporters after a 2-0 loss to Leicester City: "It intensified for me a while ago. Expectations at this club are high.

"Right or wrong. When we perform like that it is normal people will ask questions.

"It is not my decision. That is something that will always be there.

"Some things are always beyond your control. That I can't answer."
