Chelsea beat Wolves 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday to secure Champions League football for next season.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was full of praise for his players after the win over Wolves and praised Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud for their performance against Wolves.

Speaking after the win over Wolves, Lampard said: “They’re a really good side to play against, but the discipline of my team today was fantastic. Sometimes we haven’t had that at home this season.

“Mason’s strike was pure quality, Giroud was class as always. It [finishing in the top-four] means a great deal to me, [but] at Chelsea we can’t get too excited with top-four finishes.

“When we first came in we maybe weren’t considered there but what we’ve done this season is take the opportunity to bring in the younger players and improve the existing players.

“There were a lot of unknowns when I came in – could we move forward without Eden Hazard? We knew we had lost a massive player.

“We’ve a real spirit within the group now and it’s a real team effort now.

“Myself and the staff want to improve every time, the challenge now is to see what more we can do next season.”
