Frank Lampard ‘sacked’ LIVE: Tuchel favourite to replace him as Chelsea boss, players ‘told NOT to attend training’


Tammy Abraham struck a hat-trick to send Chelsea into the fifth round of the FA Cup.

A trip to Barnsley awaits after the 3-1 win over Luton.

The Championship club were unhappy with the nature of the first goal after Chelsea used a ball sat by the side of the pitch for a quick throw-in, rather than the ball kicked into touch.

However, there were still negatives for the Blues.

Kepa Arrizabalaga flapped at a shot for Luton’s goal and Timo Werner missed a late penalty.

Frank Lampard said of his ailing striker: “I’m disappointed for him. He gave a lot to the performance today.

“He was a threat behind, his link up with Tammy, his link up with people around him, it’s just one of those things. When it’s not going for you, it can happen. I missed penalties, I know the feeling.

“I know he will feel despondent, maybe now and the last few minutes of the game, but he shouldn’t be. It’s my job and his teammates’ job to lift him and he will be fine.”

The win will relieve some pressure on Lampard with Brendan Rodgers reportedly eyed to replace him.

Leicester’s title charge is impressing Stamford Bridge bigwigs, according to the Sunday Mirror.

And Fikayo Tomori has revealed a chat with Paolo Maldini was key to his decision to join AC Milan.

The Chelsea loanee said: “It’s a club with great history, this is an opportunity I couldn’t turn down

“I was surprised, when I spoke to Paolo Maldini, the best defender who has ever played football, I knew this was where I wanted to be and where I wanted to play football.

“I am very happy to be here now.”
