Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has backed Frank Lampard to win the Premier League before fellow young coaches Mikel Arteta and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Blues legend stepped up to the role after a year of experience at Championship side Derby, leading the Rams to the play-off finals in 2019.

Lampard arrived in the midst of a tough period for his former side after being handed a two-window transfer ban and losing their best player, Eden Hazard.

The English coach guided Chelsea to a fourth-placed finish in his first season and has been heavily backed by the west London club this summer who have spent almost £250 million on new players.

Arsenal boss Arteta, meanwhile, has the least managerial experience out of the three after taking over from Unai Emery last December at the Emirates.

The Spaniard managed to win the FA Cup in his first season, beating Lampard’s Chelsea in the final, but the Gunners finished in eighth place last campaign.
