Chelsea can secure qualification for the knockout stage of the Champions League if the Blues beat Valencia away in Spain by scoring at least two goals.

When asked if Chelsea can reach the Champions League final, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard told talkSPORT: “We are far too far away from that to say it.

“What I will say is that even after last night I was still very level headed and was thinking that Valencia is a tough game and we need to go there and try and get something.

“The two games we’ve got now are massive for us to get through the group.

“The last thing I would do is shout about getting too far down the competition.

“But, having said that, we do need to remain confident and believe in ourselves, and we’ve seen other teams who can get deep in the competition by being on a run at the right time and doing the right thing.

“So there is lots and lots of work that needs to be done, but things like last night are little parts of the story.

“There are things we must learn – we can’t give sloppy goals away and can’t have sleepy moments to give them the lead – but if we correct those things then in the long term I hope there is far we can go with this group.”
