The defeat against Arsenal this morning made Lampard one more sad milestone in his military career.
Chelsea lost 1-3 to Arsenal in the match in the 34th round of the Premier League this morning. This result makes the Blues continue to sink deep in the bottom half of the rankings.
For personal coach Frank Lampard, the defeat to Arsenal was the 6th consecutive defeat since he was reappointed at Chelsea. This loss made Super Frankie recreate a sad statistic that has existed for 35 years. Specifically, he became the first English coach to lose all 10 consecutive matches in all competitions when leading a team in the top division of England since 1988.
In Lampard’s 10-game losing streak, there were four at Everton and six at Chelsea. Lampard has lost to Brighton, Man Utd, Southampton and West Ham in the last 4 matches to lead The Toffees. It was the poor results under Lampard that pushed Everton into the relegation battle. Merseyside Blue then appointed Sean Dyche to rescue the club. At Chelsea, Super Frankie extended their losing streak when they lost all of their first six matches, including two defeats against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
Before Lampard, there was another English coach in a similar situation. That’s Arthur Cox of Derby County. The 83-year-old former coach was appointed to lead Derby County from the 1983/1984 season. In February 1988, Derby County under Arthur Cox lost 10 games in a row. However, the British strategist was very lucky not to be fired at that time. Arthur Cox continued to lead this club until October 1993.
This has not been a smooth season for English coaches. Four national coaches have been sacked: Scott Parker (Bournemouth), Steven Gerrard (Aston Villa), Frank Lampard (Everton) and Graham Potter (Chelsea).
As for Chelsea, 6 defeats under Lampard made this team have to speed up the process of finding a new coach. The Blues are said to have reached personal agreements with Argentina coach Mauricio Pochettino.
