Chelsea coach Lampard names Manager of the Month for October

EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 08/11/2019

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has been named Manager of the Month for October after guiding the Blues to three straight victories last month.

The 41-year-old coach was appointed as the new head coach at the former club on 4 July 2019, on a three-year contract but his first competitive game with the Europa League holders was a 4-0 loss to Manchester United on the opening day of the 2019-20 Premier League season and it was the biggest defeat for the west London outfit  manager in their first game since Danny Blanchflower's team was beaten 7–2 by Middlesbrough in December 1978.

Chelsea had a perfect record in October with a 4-1 demolishing over Southampton at Saint Mary Stadium before a 1-0 home win against Newcastle United and ended the month with a 4-2 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor.

The winning run which has now extended to five in the league has seen the club climb to fourth place, six points clear of fifth-place Arsenal.

Lampard's next match is the visit of Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge on Saturday before international.
