The Blues’ first game under their new interim manager, Frank Lampard, saw them defeated by the struggling hosts because they were toothless once more.
Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to the Wolves on Saturday showed that they still have a lot of issues to fix after firing coach Graham Potter.
In the interim coach Frank Lampard’s debut match, the Blues were dreadful and unable to pose a threat to their opponents; thus, there was no new manager bounce.
With Raheem Sterling and Joao Felix, Kai Havertz once again struggled up front. Still, players like Enzo Fernandez, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Wesley Fofana put in solid efforts to keep things from worsening.
With their loss at Wolves, Chelsea are now placed at 11th in the Premier League table, far from the top 4 needed for Champions League qualification.
For Chelsea, Lampard’s return, save for a few tactical adjustments and personnel changes, was the same weary and meek team that had labored to mediocrity at the middle of the table.
Lampard needs quick answers to save Chelsea from going downhill; otherwise, he might see his way out soon too.
