Frank Lampard has warned Chelsea FC that they will have to “work” to turn around their stuttering form in the Premier League.

The Blues slumped to a 3-1 defeat by Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime as they suffered their third defeat in four outings in the top flight.

Those results have allowed Manchester United to move to within just five points of Lampard’s men in the table as the race for Champions League qualification hots up.

Chelsea FC have now lost five games in the Premier League this season and Lampard will be keen for his side to steady the ship ahead of the hectic festive period in the top flight.

The Blues will take on Lille at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League on Tuesday night, before facing Bournemouth at home in the Premier League next weekend.

And Lampard has told his Chelsea FC players to get ready to work hard as they look to bounce back in the coming days and weeks.

Asked what is needed for his Chelsea FC team to find their consistency again, Lampard told a news conference: “Work.

“We had it nice, we were winning games but this is the Premier League and we went to City and played pretty well and lost the game but the two defeats since then are signs of where we need to get better, because we played two teams that have been having a tough time.

“We have allowed the games to go away from us for different reasons, and they are big lessons for us.”

Chelsea FC are now free to sign players in the January transfer window after their Fifa ban was halved.
