Chelsea manager Frank Lampard ,is satisfied with his team’s position in the league table. Though they are sitting at number 3, Lampard knows that the upcoming matches will not be easy for his boys.

On Tuesday the Blues handed over a defeat to the relegated Norwich City (1-0) at Stamford Bridge. And that placed the team ,in the third spot – four points ahead of Leicester City and Man Utd. They understood they would just have to stay ahead of Man U ,as the Red Devils dropped points against Southampton. The battle for a top-four spot remains in range.

Frank Lampard said his squad understood what to do, the moment Manchester United lost points. He said his squad knew the match against Norwich is a crucial match and which they will have to capitalize ,on to maintain the position in the league table.

“I actually didn’t speak to them ,about [capitalizing] today. Because I think I have mentioned other games around us. We all saw the game but I don’t think I had to say that to them today. We know that when the team around you has a moment like that then you have to capitalize. And failed to do that at other times this season,” Lampard said.

With Olivier Giroud scoring the match’s only goal the Blues secured the match which kept them in the number three position. Lampard said he’s much more pleased, but he still realizes the forthcoming matches are against several challenging teams. So it’s not going to be that easy for his team to hold the spot. Chelsea’s next match is against Liverpool at Anfield and in the last match, they will face Wolves at home.

“When you keep coming up against Liverpool away and Wolves at home – they are just two really good opponents. We just have to focus on one-by-one, prepare right, and show the right attitude. I thought we showed it today in way. Those two games will look completely different from what tonight did but rather than talk about bottle, I want to talk about focus and talk about attitude, and then hopefully we have enough to get through but it is going to be tough,” he said.

Although The Blues are battling for the qualification for the next year’s champions league, Lampard’s side is still competing in the current edition but faces a daunting struggle with a three-goal gap, in the second leg to their round-of-16 match upcoming month to overtake Bayern.

Including a semi-final of the FA Cup coming up against Manchester United on Sunday, Frank Lampard thinks the team should be confident about where, they are at in their current stage of development.
