Ahead of Tuesday’s game against Leicester City at the King Power stadium, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hailed Leicester as Premier League contenders.
“Leicester are in the title race for sure because of the way they are playing, the results they are getting, and their position in the league,” he said.
“Last season we managed to get above them at the back end of the season but it was a big ask for us because they’re a very good team with very good individuals and a very good manager.
“They’re in the race and there are others that are in the race but we have to not consider the race at the moment and consider ourselves and if we can get wins that will propel us back up to where we want to be.
“It (the title race) is relatively open, especially compared to recent years.”
