This is why Frank Lampard is sitting on shaky grounds

The position of Chelsea coach Frank Lampard is dimming as his side went a goal down during the group stages of the Champions League.

Having encountered problems in the Premier League opening games, Frank Lampard is surely having an uphill task to prove his worth at the club.

Playing a competitive league, Chelsea has to rise to be able to proceed in the Champions League despite going down at home against Valencia.

The visitors took the lead through Rodrigo who took advantage of the home defense to send the ball behind the net.

The Blue pushed harder in the dying minutes and they were awarded a penalty when the ball came off a Valencia player.

Rose Barkley insisted to take the penalty as he clearly disagreed with the usual takers that are Willian and Jorginho.

Barley sent the ball high hitting the post before deflecting outside giving the visitors advantage in the group.

Lampard who is up against tough competition of the like of Lille and last season semifinalist’s Ajax will have to rise to make it through.

If the results continue being the same both in England and at the Champions League, the legend is likely to be sent packing by club owner Abramovich.
