UNCOVERED: Only AVB has worse record than Lampard as Abramovich era Chelsea manager

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard's record in the Premier League is the second WORST of the Roman Abramovich era.

His current points-per-game (PPG) record of 1.70 is matched only by Andre Villas-Boas at the bottom of the pile.

And it means he is a massive 0.61 PPG behind No1 Avram Grant.

Lampard has 27 wins, 11 draws and 16 defeats from his 54 league games in charge since replacing Maurizio Sarri in the summer of 2019.

The Boxing Day defeat at Arsenal and draw at home to Aston Villa on Monday mean his win percentage has dropped to 50 per cent.

That is, at least, slightly better than Villas-Boas who managed 48 per cent in his 27 games in charge, reports The Sun.

Claudio Ranieri, who was in charge when Abramovich took over in 2003, ended up with 1.82 PPG and a 52 per cent win ratio from his 146 Premier League matches.

He is pipped by the likes of Roberto Di Matteo (1.83), Sarri (1.89), Guus Hiddink (1.94), Luiz Felipe Scolari (1.96) and Rafael Benitez (1.96) who all fell just short of two points per game.

Premier League-winning managers Carlo Ancelotti, Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho make it into the top four on the list.
