Former Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has hailed the work Frank Lampard is doing at Chelsea.

Torres who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012, still keeps an eye on Chelsea, and is pleased with the team’s progress under Frank Lampard, as well as the signings made by the Blues boss.

However, Torres who also featured for Liverpool before signing for Chelsea, has revealed that he doesn’t expect Chelsea to oust Liverpool to the title so soon, although he is expecting Chelsea to close the gap.

“I think they are building a fantastic team, not just for this season, but for the future,” Torres told talkSPORT.

“They are building a very interesting squad but they are young, and you can see Frank [Lampard] can manage a young team as he did last season in a brilliant way.

“They will be close but I don’t know if they can compete with Liverpool and Man City.

“Hopefully they can go for the Premier League right until the end.

“I think Liverpool will still be stronger than Man City or Chelsea. In the next two or three years, the Premier League, again, will be the top league in the world.

“The future stars are going there. It’s an exciting moment for Premier League fans.”
