Chelsea have a huge clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening, and the Blues are massive underdogs heading to this game, according to bookmakers.
Frank Lampard’s side are in good form heading to this game having won six consecutive league matches, and many believe that this game against City will serve as a litmus test to know how far the Blues have come under Lampard.
Meanwhile, the Chelsea boss has urged that his team shouldn’t be judged with the outcome of this match but the overall work that has been done this season.
“We are playing Man City and I’m not going to judge us right now on that one game,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“I will judge us over what we’ve done until now, how we keep improving, how we work and where we go over a bigger period.
“We know that when you go to Man City or any of these big teams that you can lose, but what you must do is give everything and not roll over, no matter what happens, and you must fight until the end and give everything you can as a team.
“We won’t change our plan hugely. Some people ask if we’re going to go there and defend or can we go and attack but you’re going to have to defend, it’s all about how well you do it and it’s going to be a huge part of the game.”
