Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed what will represent success for Chelsea this season.
According to the boss, a fourth place finish and qualification for the Champions League next season will represent success for the Blues this season.
Lampard believes fourth place will represent success for Chelsea following the inability of the Blues to sign players due to the transfer ban and the sale of Eden Hazard.
“It’s a very dated phrase, when people say that you are Chelsea, there’s no way you should be happy with fourth,” said Lampard.
“No, the Premier League has changed. It is not like it was for Manchester United players 15 or 20 years ago, or Chelsea players when we were first or second for a period in the mid 2000s.
“It’s not like that any more. The landscape has changed. Manchester City and Liverpool have set incredible standards in the league and we have had some outside influences with the ban and a huge player left the club.”
