Credit must be given to Chelsea manager Frank Lampard for the work he’s doing in the Chelsea team as he has led a young Chelsea side to become a very strong team just few months into his tenure as Chelsea manager.

Chelsea are currently 4th in the league and level on points with Leicester City in third place and just two points behind second placed Manchester City. The Blues are scoring goals for fun and playing good football.

Chelsea have won their last five league matches and are currently the only team to have won their last five league games, and the Blues are in good form.

Despite Chelsea’s good form, Lampard has revealed his only displeasure with the team – which is the fact that they don’t sustain their football for long periods.

He said: “At times we are certainly producing some of the form I want from us.

“I will say our work-rate off the ball, although this was a different type of game, in some games we’ve been pushed hard – Ajax away, Liverpool and games like that.

“That’s been something that’s really pleased me. They’ve worked and they’ve done that through training at a level that’s got them fit enough.

“We work a lot on that. In periods of games I’m really pleased with how we’re combining and switching the ball, the wingers are getting involved in the game.

“If I’ve got a gripe it’s that we’re not sustaining that for long enough periods at times. I know it’s not easy, but we always strive for more.

“I’m pleased with big parts of it, but we can get better.”
