Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has acknowledged he is worried about his team’s poor form, following their 2-0 loss to Leicester City on Tuesday night.
Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison were both on target for the foxes in the first half as the Blues suffered another set back at the King Power Stadium.
This result leaves Chelsea in eighth position, five points away from Liverpool in the final Champions League qualification spot, having played a game more than Jurgen Klopp’s side.
It was also their fifth defeat in their last eight Premier League outings.
“We won against Fulham without playing brilliantly, from that we come and lose a game, so it’s a small step backwards,” Lampard told Sky Sports after the final whistle.
“I am worried about the slump – from the form we were in to get so quickly into the form we’re now in and we’ve had some wins but five losses in eight isn’t where we want to be.
“It takes character to get out of that – I’m not against the lads in the dressing room because they’re disappointed.
Lampard believes his team will come off the loss and do well in the coming games.
“It’s a young team and it’s a big lesson that if you come off it and think you’re fine then you’ve got to get yourself out of the hole.”
