Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has warned his Chelsea side cannot replicate the performances of previous champions Liverpool and Manchester City this season.
Lampard insists Chelsea aren’t yet at the level of Liverpool and Manchester City.
Lampard told a press conference this week: “The realism is we are not a Liverpool of last year or a Manchester City of the year before where you can just go out and win, win, win, win, win. In periods, you have to be ready for some tough moments.
“Everyone was talking about us going on a great run and we should win the league. Part of my reasoning to dampen that was other teams have probably been together longer and built for longer which builds confidence within the group of players that they can deal with things better in games.
“Liverpool in their period now, they looked like an absolute machine last year, but there would have moments that they would have gone through over those four or so years as a club where they would have looked at themselves.”
