Chelsea need to stay grounded – Lampard


Chelsea coach Frank Lampard says there is nothing wrong with supporters dreaming that the club can win the Premier League title.

However, the Blues mentor stressed that his players cannot afford to get complacent.

Two thousand fans attended the Chelsea game against Leeds United on Saturday at Stamford Bridge – the first attendance in nine months due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Chelsea came from behind to secure a 3-1 victory over Leeds.

“There’s certainly nothing wrong with the fans thinking that we are [title contenders].

“It’s great to have them back, their input was huge, the noise huge. You can see how excited they are at the end that we are top of the league.

“My job and our job is to know that it’s a long season and the next question is how consistent can we be with this form, how much we can improve, because I believe there is a lot more we can do and there will be a lot of challenges ahead.”

Lampard faces a nervous wait to learn the extent of an injury picked up by Morocco winger Hakim Ziyech in the first half.

“It is a hamstring injury which we will find out the severity of in the next couple of days. It is obviously a disappointment going into this busy period,” concluded Lampard.
