Chelsea 1 Manchester City 3, Sunday, January 3, 2021
Lampard spent a whole lot during the summer transfer window and was expected to prove his worth against Manchester City.

Arsenal 3 Chelsea 1, Saturday, December 26, 2020
A London derby is one match all Chelsea managers love to win but Frank Lampard failed to secure even a point when Chelsea met Arsenal on boxing day.
Arsenal were in a crisis at that time but won the match emphatically as Frank Lampard failed to find a solution to his team awful performance.
Leicester 2 Chelsea 0, Tuesday, January 19, 2021
Brenden Rodgers work at Leicester City can’t be overlooked but Chelsea were expected to leave King Power with a positive result when both side meet.
However, Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison goal added more salt to Chelsea’s wound.
