Bookmakers are predicting that Frank Lampard will soon be appointed as Chelsea’s head coach for the second time in his career, with European bookmakers putting the odds of his appointment at 1.06. Lampard previously managed the club between 2019 and 2021, and his potential return comes after the resignation of Graham Potter.
Despite a disappointing season in the Premier League, Chelsea still has a chance to redeem themselves in the Champions League, where they will face Real Madrid in the quarterfinals. However, bookmakers estimate their odds of winning the tournament at 15.00. Additionally, bookmakers are offering a seemingly risky bet that Chelsea will have a positive goal difference at the end of the ACL season, with odds of 1.72. Chelsea currently has a 29-30 goal differential, but with nine games left in the championship, they have the opportunity to improve this.
One of these opportunities comes this coming Saturday when Chelsea faces Wolverhampton. Bookmakers have put odds of 2.01 on Chelsea winning the match, making them the favorites. If Chelsea manages to secure a win, it could be a step in the right direction for the team and Lampard, who will be looking to turn things around for the club in his potential return as head coach.
