Frank Lampard is a serial winner, and the Blues boss won three Premier League titles during his time at the club.

The Chelsea legend has been tasked with guiding a young Chelsea squad to becoming champions, and the Blues boss has told his players that the Premier League can be brutal.

Speaking ahead of playing Wolves, Lampard said: “The Premier League is unforgiving. You saw that with different results over the weekend. We weren’t at our top level on Saturday and we got beaten. That’s it.

“We’ve been on a long unbeaten run playing some really good football, as well as winning games. We dropped our level for a game. It’s on us to pick up it again straightaway.

“It’s important for us to stay in the race. When people were touting us as title contenders, after the Leeds game particularly, I felt it’s a long race to win a Premier League. I did it as a player and I understand there are lots of elements of it.

“One of those is losing a game and trying to bounce back from it quickly which is what we need to do, and sustain performances and results over a period of time.”
