Brendan Rodgers installed as FAVOURITE to be the next Chelsea manager

Brendan Rodgers has been installed as the bookies’ favourite to be the next Chelsea boss as pressure builds on Frank Lampard.

Chelsea slipped to a fourth defeat in their last six games against Manchester City on Sunday after a dreadful first half where they conceded three times in the opening 34 minutes.

Despite a £253million splurge in the summer window, Chelsea find themselves eighth in the table after 17 games – three points off the top four and seven adrift of leaders Liverpool.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has an infamous reputation of ruthlessly sacking managers, and Lampard is now believed to be walking a tightrope.

The favourite to replace him is Rodgers, who has Leicester sitting third in the table and just a point off the pace.
