Great News: Football Manager predicted 3(three) Chelsea Final Place in Premier League table. Chelsea are pushing to secure Champions League football for Frank Lampard’s side at Stamford Bridge next season

Frank Lampard’s first season in Chelsea has caught the eyes of many and a stern fight lies ahead in the final months of the season in the hunt to secure Champions League football.

The Blues were superb in the opening months of the campaign but have stumbled more recently, failing to win their last three Premier League matches prior to the winter break.

That has opened the door for the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham, Wolves and even Sheffield United to claw back into the race for a top-four finish.

With a challenging FA Cup clash with Liverpool on the horizon and a Champions League double-header with Bayern Munich, the pressure on the squad increasing.

So can Lampard cope with the pressure? Will Champions League football return to Stamford Bridge next season? We used popular football management simulation game Football Manager 2020 to find out.
