Chelsea will be desperate to end a four-game winless Premier League run when they welcome London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunchtime.
The Blues suffered yet more disappointment on Monday evening as they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire.
A second defeat in four games left Frank Lampard’s side occupying the final UEFA Champions League place, but only ahead of this weekend’s opponents, Spurs, by a solitary point, meaning there is a great deal of pressure riding on Saturday’s showdown.
Regardless of the outcome of the meeting between Lampard and Jose Mourinho in West London, there will still be plenty more twists and turns in the battle for a top-four finish by the time May arrives.
But whatever position Chelsea do end the campaign in, Lampard is going to be sure to want to bolster his squad in the summer in the hope of experiencing a stronger 2020/21.
