Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has told his players to forget about the Premier League title race and focus simply on getting back into the top four.
Chelsea are currently 7th in the league, 5 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
“We can’t consider too much the race as it stands, instead we have to consider ourselves – consider can we get a result against Leicester who are a competitor up there,” said Lampard.
“And then see can we get wins together that will propel us back up to where we want to be.
“But the race is relatively open, especially in comparison to recent years I suppose.
“Leicester are in the race for sure, the way they are playing and the results they’re getting and their position in the league.
“We managed to get above Leicester at the back-end of last season, but it was a big ask for us.
“They are a very good team, with very good individuals, we know that, and a really good manager in Brendan Rodgers.
“So they’re in the race, and there are others that are in the race too.”
