Fat chance Frank – Lampard installed as favourite in the sack race

It’s like a revolving door at The Blues!


Frank Lampard is already top of the table at Chelsea, after we made him favourite in their sack race betting.

Though he is just minutes into his Stamford Bridge return, Lampard is 6/1 to be the first top-flight axed.

That puts him alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, ahead of the likes of Graham Potter at Brighton and the other three newly-promoted bosses.

We are also offering an enhanced price that Chelsea fail to win any of their first three league games, boosting the price from 5/1 to 8/1 – while it’s odds on (4/5) that Chelsea finish outside the top four this season.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “We reckon Frank’s gonna get Lamped at Chelsea. After all, it’s been more than a month since Roman Abramovich forced out his last manager.

“Amid the euphoria of his appointment, there are a few rather conspicuous elephants in the room – the transfer ban, the sale of Eden Hazard, and David Luiz still being relied upon in defence.”
