Frank’s back and Arsenal face Anfield test – Premier League talking points

The Premier League campaign is on the home straight and the growing pressure has shown with more managerial departures in the last week.

Here the PA news agency looks at the key talking points going into the Easter weekend.

Frank’s back

When Frank Lampard was sacked by relegation-battling Everton in January, you would have got pretty good odds on him finishing the season as Chelsea manager. Actually, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, Chelsea have nine games left and nine games is a long time at Stamford Bridge. Lampard’s first spell in charge of Chelsea ended a little over two years ago after a dramatic drop in form, but his return now makes sense. Hopes of a top-four finish are all but gone, and there is discontent within a bloated squad overstocked with the scattergun acquisitions of the club’s owners. A major overhaul is needed but finding the right candidate will take time. Before then, the return of a man who still has huge credit with the Chelsea fans from his playing days has already lifted the mood going into Saturday’s trip to Wolves.
