Frank Lampard is adamant Chelsea can still win the title after proving on Tuesday night they have “turned the corner”, according to the Independent.
The England midfielder refuses to give up hope as they still have to travel to Old Trafford in May, and he says all they can do is keep winning.
“If we keep winning all our games we’re going to be in with a right shout, certainly we’ve not been at our best lately so it was good for the crowd to see a good performance with some quality and some spirit.”
Chelsea visit Blackpool on Monday night, by which time they could be back in fifth dependant on other results around them.
Ranieri backs Blues for Champions.
Former Chelsea and Roma manager Claudio Ranieri says the Blues can win their first Champions League title this year.
The Stamford bridge side are nicely positioned with a 2-0 lead over Copenhagen, with the home leg to come, and the Italian doesn’t see why they could not go all the way.
“I think that this Chelsea side can win the Champions League because it is a marvellous squad with fantastic players.” And he continued to say their poor domestic form comes as no surprise.
“I am not surprised they have struggled in the Premier League this season,” he told TuttoSport. “Football is not a science as a team can do well as well as play poor.”
No Torres panic.
Fernando Torres refuses to panic whilst he awaits his first goal in a blue shirt, since joining from Anfield, he told Chelsea’s official magazine.
The Spaniard has made four appearances, one of them against his former club, and he has yet to find the net but he is sure the goals will come as soon as he settles in with the clubs style of play.
“It’s important to understand the style of football your team is playing, how you are involved in the system and everything. This always takes some time. But, I think once you get it everything becomes much easier”
He concluded: “I’m ready for this because I want to play where the manager asks me to – I know the competition is high here.”
