Chelsea coach Frank Lampard issued a warning to his players after the blue team took the provisional leader of the Premier on Saturday by beating Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds 3-1. Lampard said that there is nothing wrong with fans dreaming of winning the Premier League, but stressed that his players cannot afford to be complacent with themselves.
When Lampard was asked whether Chelsea fans are right to consider their title contender, Lampard told reporters: “There is certainly nothing wrong with our fans thinking that. It’s great to have them back in the stands, their participation was huge, the noise was huge. You can see how excited they are at the end because we were leaders. “
“My job and our job is to know that it is a long season and the next question is if we can maintain this form, how much can we improve, because I think there is much more we can do and there will be many challenges ahead.”
Lampard is waiting to find out the extent of an injury suffered by Moroccan winger Hakim Ziyech in the first half. “It is a hamstring injury whose severity we will know in the next few days.”
