At the start of the season, there were doubts about Chelsea. The Blues had employed a rookie coach in Frank Lampard, the club had lost their best player in Eden Hazard, and to make matters worse, Chelsea were hit with a transfer ban.

Finishing in the top four was deemed as a major achievement for Frank Lampard’s young side, and the Blues sealed a top four finish by beating Wolves 2-0.

Lampard’s first year at Chelsea has now been deemed a success, and it could even end with a cup trophy, as Chelsea face Arsenal in the FA Cup final.

Speaking after the game against Wolves, Lampard admitted that his one wish would have been to enjoy the celebration with the Chelsea fans at the end of the game.

Lampard told the media: “Not having the fans here, as the manager of the club, it is important for me to say it was a moment I would have liked to have enjoyed with the fans at the end because we have been very together this year, and the support from the fans during some inconsistent and difficult times has been huge.

“I want to thank them from afar because the achievement of the top four is for them first and foremost and we look forward to having them back.”
