Frank Lampard believes Chelsea have now become the underdogs after failing to sign anyone this January.

“I look at Manchester United signing a big, big player, a world-class player [Fernandes] in my opinion,” Lampard said. “And the teams around us, Sheffield United making fantastic signings. Chris Wilder’s job is incredible because he’s had years to work that group and now they’re adding where he sees fit.
“Tottenham have signed a few and they’re not far behind us. And not only have they signed a few but a couple of players have left where the situation was they were towards the end of their contracts and maybe weren’t happy being at the club any more. Sometimes that’s as important as bringing players in.
“Now what remains to be seen will be seen and from my view – and this is not to talk ourselves down because we’re six points clear in fourth – now we become probably the underdogs and the outsiders to some point because the teams around us have strengthened. It’s a fact.”
