- Frank Lampard suffered yet another defeat to Manchester United this season
- Martial and Maguire both scored in either half to help the Red Devils complete a double over the Blues at Stamford Bridge this campaign
- Chelsea fans are not happy with the results and want their club legend sacked
Chelsea fans seem to be running out of patience with their manager Frank Lampard after their disappointing defeat to Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.
A goal each from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire ensured the Red Devils completed a Premier League double over the Blues in a single season.
The defeat also means that the London club risks losing their fourth position with Tottenham Hotspur set to displace them from that position.
Jose Mourinho's Spurs are fifth at the moment with 40 points and if the Europa League defending champions fail to turn their fortunes around, they might not play Champions League next term.

SunSport gathers that last night's defeat was Chelsea's seventh home defeat in the ongoing EPL season - and this could jeopardise their top-four finish.
Although, Kurt Zouma and Olivier Giroud both found the back of the net VAR denied them the chance to record their names on the scores sheet.
However, Lampard's legendary status at the club might be under pressure as some of the inpatient fans are not satisfied with the poor run of results.

While expressing their displeasure towards the manager one of the club's fans asked Lampard to be sacked on talkSPORT.
He ranted: "Frank Lampard is getting away with murder down at the Bridge. Every game he comes on to the middle of the pitch and claps the fans and they sing his name – it’s not good enough.
"No fans are applying any pressure to him and he’s basically got a free run to do exactly what he pleases.
“He’s not making the right decisions, he’s not picking the right team, and I don’t think he knows what he is doing, to be honest. “I really don’t believe Frank Lampard knows what he is doing.”
The angry supporter added: "I want him and that joker Jody Morris to be given the boot – the pair of them don’t have a clue.”
Meanwhile, some other fans of Chelsea also share the sentiment for Lampard to be shown the exit doors even before the end of his first year at the club.
One said on Twitter: "Sack Lampard coz he is not an intelligent coach".
Another said: "Waiting for Lampard’sack. Hurry up. We dont have anymore time to waste. #LampardOut".
While proferring solution to their immediate problem, some of the supporters believe former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino should be given a chance to manage the club.
On said: "@ChelseaFC let’s sack lampard and bring poch".
"Unpopular opinion: I would gladly sack Lampard and appoint Pochettino. I won’t go into details bcos if I do, we won’t have a nap".
Chelsea are fourth on the table with 41 points after 26 rounds of matches this campaign and unless something positive happens, they might be campaigning in the Europa League next season.
