Super Frank To Lead Chelsea To A Top 4 Finish?
Frank Lampard looks on the verge of becoming the new Chelsea manager after Derby County allowed him to speak to the London club about their vacant post.
With Lampard touted for the position over the last number of weeks since the exit of Maurizio Sarri for Juventus, we were forced to suspend the betting following an avalanche of bets on Lampard returning to West London with 1/25 the lowest price before the market was pulled.
Chelsea’s all-time highest goal scorer could aid the club to further success should he return to his old side with their odds closing into 10/11 from Even money to finish in the Top 4 in the Premier League next season.
Chelsea secured their first trophy under Maurizio Sarri last month in a 4-1 victory over Arsenal at the Olympic Stadium in Baku in the first all-English Europa League final since 1972.
We introduced Chelsea at 25/1 for the 2019/20 Champions League and 20/1 for the Premier League but they have since been cut into 18/1.
The former England midfielder, who guided Derby County to the Championship play-off final in his first season in charge at Pride Park, is expected to be imminently confirmed as the Blues’ new manager with Roy Keane now priced at 11/2 to take over from Lampard.
