Lampard arrives at Chelsea and is installed as sack race leader

July 5th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

Frank Lampard has been confirmed as the new Chelsea boss – but already Bookmakers are not sure he will last the distance and he is the early front-runner in the Premier League Sack Race.

Lampard rejoined Chelsea this week, after leaving Derby County, succeeding Maurizio Sarri – who joined Juventus.

Going into the new season and Lampard has been backed for success, although that has not stopped Bookmakers making him odds-on at 5/6 to leave before the end of the season.

Lampard is also at the head of the Sack Race – alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who he will meet in his first ever Premier League game as Chelsea travel to Manchester United on the opening weekend.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The appointment of Frank Lampard is truly fascinating, but it remains to be seen if he will be a success – Bookmakers are not so sure, given he is odds-on not to last.

“He is 4/1 to claim a major trophy in the coming season, which looks a reasonable price.”

Selected Chelsea odds:
To leave Chelsea before May 17th 2020 – 5/6
Chelsea to be the Top London Club – 9/4
To win a trophy in 2019/20 Season (PL,FA Cup,EFL Cup,CL) – 4/1

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 6/1
Frank Lampard – 6/1
Graham Potter – 15/2
