Chelsea have resumed the season in good form, as the Blues have gotten two massive wins in the games against Aston Villa and Manchester City.

Chelsea had a good game against City, as the Blues defeated last season’s champions 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, in what was a very intense game between the two sides.

However, despite the victory, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is not being carried away with the victory, and he has warned his players to stay focused as the top four fight isn’t over yet.

“It’s a big three points for us, but we’re in a battle here,” Lampard said.

“It’s not going to be decided by that game. It’s a nice result that will give us confidence, but the consistency that we produce to the end of the season is what will define us this year if we are to get the finish we want to have.

“I’m not getting carried away. We can get better. We can be better on the ball.

“We can have more possession. It’s one of the only games in which we didn’t have the lion’s share of possession but we have to accept that tonight and be happy with the result.

“We had to work a lot off the ball, as you do with Pep Guardiola teams and Manchester City. The way the lads showed the work ethic and focus throughout the game, how dangerous we were; we had the better chances in the game.”
