Lampard urges Chelsea to focus, as top 4 heats up

July 16, 2020 By 0 Comments

Chelsea knew they needed to take advantage of Manchester United dropping points as the Premier League’s top-four battle race heats up, according to coach Frank Lampard.

The Blues overcame relegated Norwich City 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday in a nervy display that kept the team in third position – four points clear of Leicester City and Man Utd.

With the Red Devils conceding a 96th minute equaliser to draw 2-2 with Bournemouth on Sunday night, Lampard said his players knew the Norwich match was an opportunity to get some breathing space on their rivals for Champions League places.

“I actually didn’t speak to them about [capitalising] today because I think I have mentioned other games around us,” Lampard said. We all saw the game but I don’t think I had to say that to them today.

“We know that when the team around you has a moment like that then you have to capitalise. We failed to do that at other times this season.

“All I wanted to do was make sure we did our job tonight. I felt tonight was about us. We were against a team who has just been relegated. With all respect, here at home if we get our job done at home we get three points and we did do that.”
