Paul Scholes believes Frank Lampard will be frustrated by Chelsea FC’s inability to turn good performances into victories under Frank Lampard.

The Blues produced one of their best performances against defending Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday evening.

However, Chelsea FC still suffered a 2-1 loss to Pep Guardiola’s side in spite of N’Golo Kante’s opening goal in the first half.

Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez cancelled out Kante’s early strike to secure three points for the title holders in the top-four clash.

Chelsea FC centre-halves Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori produced nervous performances in the middle of Lampard’s defence.

The Blues are in fourth position and seven points ahead of fifth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes explained why Lampard will be frustrated with some of Chelsea FC’s results in the current campaign.

“They keep going to these big clubs, playing really well and not winning games. That will be frustrating for him I think, because he knows he’s got quality in his team but he’s missing something,” Scholes is quoted as saying by Metro.

“He’s definitely missing something. He went to Manchester United, everyone said Chelsea were the best team, played really well, got beat 4-0. Played against Liverpool, played OK, I don’t think they were anything great against Liverpool, got beat.

“Played against Manchester City, everyone’s saying the best team, they were really good, they played well, they’ve lost the game. Now he has to find a way of changing that.”

Chelsea FC are in fourth position in the Premier League table and 11 points adrift of Liverpool FC in the title race.

Their 2-1 loss to Manchester City brought to an end the west London side’s impressive six-game winning run in the Premier League.

Chelsea FC appointed Lampard as their new manager in the summer after Maurizio Sarri parted company with the west London outfit to take over the reins at Juventus.
