Chelsea suffered their worst-ever Premier League defeat at City on Sunday and Sarri is now the bookmakers' favourite to become the next Premier League manager to be sacked, with Lampard and Zinedine Zidane the favourites to replace him.

Lampard also gave an update on Derby's proposed move for former Celtic centre-back Efe Ambrose, who left Hibernian in January and has since been training with the Pride Park outfit. Even the Italian seemed unsure in his post-match press conference, admitting his job is always at risk.

"All my thoughts are on Ipswich Town away on Wednesday - I hope to see Chelsea put some form together and turn their results around".

Sarri's players and the club were humiliated by the 6-0 drubbing against Pep Guardiola's City at the weekend and have been pushed out of the top four by Manchester United's resurgence under caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Pompeo: US 'Not Covering Up' Khashoggi Murder
Trump skipped a congressional deadline Friday for delivering a report on who's responsible for the slaying of Khashoggi. A 40-member Saudi delegation, and over 100 Saudi and Pakistani business leaders will attend the global event.

"With my Chelsea hat on, 13 years as a player there, you have a feeling for it and it's not nice, it's not easy".

According to The Daily Telegraph, Chelsea's players are reluctant to pin the blame exclusively on Sarri and recognise that they have not shown enough character during the hard period.

Under Lampard's guidance, Derby are strong contenders for promotion this season, with only goal difference separating them from the play-off places at present.

"It doesn't happen to Chelsea much, so when it does, it's a shock. What makes top teams is resilience and Chelsea as a club will have it".
