Frank Lampard was accused of taking a dig at his own club, as Chelsea prepare to take on London rivals Arsenal, as he praised the Premier League title chasers.
It has not been a particularly happy return to Stamford Bridge for Lampard, who has lost all five of his opening matches since returning as interim manager.
Certainly no one would have expected him to come back at any point until he did return, such was the way he departed the first time and his form at Everton.
The club's all time top scorer, however, believes that managers should be given more time at Stamford Bridge, and appeared to take a dig at the Blues, as you can see in the video below.
Speaking ahead of the match with Arsenal, the 44-year-old compared his own club's penchant for firing managers to the Gunners sticking by Arteta.
"It's interesting to compare," the former England star said, "We all had an insight to Arsenal through the Amazon series.
"There's a long process to get where you want and I remember playing Mikel's early teams and sometimes it was a five, sometimes a four. Now you see they have a clear identity.
"If we talk about it as just this season - you have to go back to the tough periods.
"I saw times when the manager was being questioned and that process can take two or three years. Another club may have changed manager two or three times."
And some fans feel that was a dig too far, "Sack him immediately,nobody insults our owners," said one fan.
"Lampard thinks he's earned the right to be Conte after five straight losses," added a second.
Adding up the interim's boss time at Goodison Park to his poor form, another supporter noted, "The man has five points from his last 20 (TWENTY) Premier League games. That’s all time record relegation form."
"This guy is just not it at all gosh, so he is saying we have to wait for two to three years, BS," argued a fourth fan.
Another questioned, "Has this guy taken Responsibility once in his managerial career? He wants to learn on the job with a top squad and a top salary."
And a sixth commenter simply stated, "Brother we are not sticking with you, so f**k off!"
Under Roman Abramovich, the decision to sack managers regularly couldn't really be argued, considering how successful the Blues were.
However, Todd Boehly's decision to sack Thomas Tuchel has not looked too smart and he didn't have a replacement for Potter lined up either.
Lampard though isn't really in a position to call for a manager to be supported for longer, having failed at Derby, Everton and Chelsea.
