Lampard believes that Chelsea could challenge for titles this season
Speaking (h/t Football.london) after the impressive 4-0 win against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League, Frank Lampard admitted that Chelsea could challenge for titles this season if the team kept up this level of performance every week.
Chelsea have had an amazing start to the season, which has seen the Blues do extremely well in the league as well as in Europe.
Frank Lampard’s men have only lost one game in regular time this season, which was against Liverpool in the Premier League.
Since then, Chelsea’s impressive form in Europe and the Premier League has seen them win their UEFA Champions League group with a game to spare as well as sit just two points behind leaders Tottenham in the league table.
Speaking about Chelsea’s impressive start, Frank Lampard has revealed that none of this would be possible without the work that his staff and players have done on and off the pitch this season.
“It is a collective thing and there’s a lot of aspects to it. We have worked. The lads have gone away and worked in a short off season. Myself and the staff did analysis on a lot of areas of our game which we wanted to improve. My job is to put them into action through work on the training ground. The other aspect is working with the players to make sure the push, drive and spirit of the players is good.”
Lampard said that he demands similar performances from his players this season as he went on to praise his new summer signings.
However, Lampard explained that he is wary of the pressure that such good results bring. He believes that Chelsea winning titles this season is possible but only if the players maintain the same level of consistency that they have in recent months.
Chelsea face Leeds United in the Premier League this week, knowing that they could be top of the Premier League table by the end of the week if results elsewhere go in their favour.
Leeds have been impressive this season but given our form, we should be able to overcome Bielsa’s challenge.
