Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard named Premier League Manager of the Month

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for October after masterminding wins over Southampton, Newcastle and Burnley.

The Blues have emerged as a major force in English football once again in recent weeks, putting a slow start to the 2019-20 campaign firmly behind them.

Lampard’s men are now fourth in the Premier League after 11 fixtures and boast a six-point lead over fifth-placed rivals Arsenal in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Chelsea have won eight of their last 10 matches across all competitions, with a flawless league run in October key to their recent resurgence.

The Stamford Bridge outfit kicked off the month with an impressive 4-1 triumph at Southampton, before earning a narrow 1-0 home win over Newcastle after the international break.

A trip to Burnley on October 26 was seen as a potential banana skin for the Blues, but a superb Christian Pulisic hat-trick helped wrap up a stunning 4-2 victory at Turf Moor.

Lampard has been rewarded for a perfect four weeks with the Premier League’s coveted manager of the month award, ahead of a crucial clash against Crystal Palace this weekend.
