Chelsea will be looking for their first win in four matches when they travel to Molineux to face Wolves on Saturday. 

The Blues have drawn against Everton and Liverpool and lost to Aston Villa in their last three outings, making victory on Saturday even more important.

Now, it appears that there could be a new man in charge of Chelsea for the match.

According to BBC Sport, club legend Frank Lampard is set to return to take charge of The Blues on an interim basis until the end of the season.

The ex-England international is expected to be announced as interim manager on Thursday, and will likely be in charge for the game against Wolves.

Lampard was sacked by Chelsea just over two years ago, having been appointed as Maurizio Sarri’s successor in the summer of 2019.

During his first stint in charge of the club, Lampard was praised for giving first team opportunities to a number of the club’s young stars, including Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Englishman is an icon at Stamford Bridge having enjoyed a remarkable spell with Chelsea as a player.

During a 13-year stay in west London, the midfielder netted a club record 211 goals in 648 matches for the club.

He also played instrumental roles as The Blues lifted 13 trophies during his time there, including the Champions League in 2012 and three Premier League titles.

During his brief stint as interim boss, which isn’t expected to last beyond the summer, Lampard will be tasked with overcoming European champions Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.

With very little left to play for in the league, winning the Champions League represents Chelsea’s only realistic chance of qualifying for the competition next term.

Lampard will also be in charge for huge games against Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The ex-England international has been out of work since being sacked by Everton in January, despite keeping the club in the Premier League last season.
