Ahead of Saturday’s game against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has urged his players to continue their four-match winning run from before the international break.

“We were playing well [before the internationals] and we have to make sure we don’t have short memories,” Lampard said.

“We must remember why we were playing well, we worked hard, improved aspects of our game and were getting good results so we must get straight back to that.

“We know that Newcastle are determined, organised and have got results already this season against teams pushing at the higher end of the league so we need to control what we can control – how quickly we move the ball, create enough chances to score goals and make sure we’re switched on to the dangers that they give us.

“I expect us to be strong, sharp, physical and at our best.”
