Chelsea are currently third on the Premier League table, a point above defending champions Manchester City and eight points behind leaders Liverpool.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists Chelsea aren’t in the title race and believes it would be a bit naive to say the Blues are in the title race.

“I don’t see beyond the next game – ours being Man City,” Lampard said, according to Chelsea’s official website.

“It’s nice to be above City, because I’ve got huge respect for them, but I certainly won’t announce us in the title race.

“We’re relatively new, we’re slightly in transition, and to get carried away would be our biggest enemy. To say that would be a bit naïve, because we’re not even a third of the way through the season.

“If we can keep replicating the form and the results, then we’re certainly going to close the gap. That’s the first step.”
