Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have been exceeding expectations and the Blues have been doing it in style, beyond the doubts that people have had on what his first season at Stamford Bridge will look like.

Frank Lampard has been named as the Premier League Manager of the Month after a flawless October that saw the Blues win all three Premier League matches.

Chelsea’s perfect run started in September with a 2-0 win over Brighton before October wins against Southampton, Newcastle and Burnley. The Blues also beat Watford this month to make it five in a row, and it has been an excellent run for the Chelsea team.

While Liverpool have also maintained such a record this season, Chelsea are currently the only team in the league to win their last five league matches, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City all getting four out of five wins.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has said that he believes in his squad although he doesn’t want to get carried away due to the tough nature of the Premier League as the other teams are equally in very good form.

“I do believe in the group,” Lampard says, “but I also understand how hard the Premier League is and the competition and teams like Liverpool and Man City, who have recently found consistency that others have not matched, so it just shows you the levels.

“It was a good month for us and it took a lot of hard work to get those results, each and every one of them. It is a good marker to show us what we need to achieve long term if we want to be successful.”
