The former Everton boss was hoping to lead his charges back to winning ways when they hosted Brighton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, April 14.

Lampard praises Chelsea duo
Despite the defeat, Metro UK reports Lampard still had some positives to pick from the result.
The Englishman singled out both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Conor Gallagher for praise, suggesting that they are the only two players who impressed the most.
"Kepa was fantastic. Conor Gallagher was another who gave every drop individually," Lampard told BBC's Match of the Day.
"But collectively, as a group, we have to accept it. We have to accept what needs to be done to play for this club and try to win games," he added.

Boehly clashes with Chelsea fans
Earlier, Sports Brief reported Chelsea fans were utterly displeased by their team's performance in the 2-1 home loss to Brighton, and they made it clear towards co-owner and chairman Todd Boehly.
It was the third straight loss for caretaker manager Frank Lampard, who replaced the sacked Graham Potter until the end of the season while the search for a new manager continues.
As spotted by Twitter user @CFCPys, some fans who sat directly above the directors' box at Stamford Bridge exchanged words with the LA Dodgers owner in what looked like an unfriendly affair.
