Frank Lampard urges team to focus on top four rather than title race

The Blues face second-placed Leicester City on Tuesday.

Frank Lampard’s men sits down at the seventh place, eight points off the table.

They won their second match in seven outings when they managed to carve out a 1-0 victory against Fulham on Saturday night.

Lampard urged his team to focus on top four and to dismiss the title race for sometime.

“We can’t consider too much the race as it stands, instead we have to consider ourselves – consider can we get a result against Leicester who are a competitor up there,” said Lampard.

“And then see can we get wins together that will propel us back up to where we want to be.

“But the race is relatively open, especially in comparison to recent years I suppose.

“Leicester are in the race for sure, the way they are playing and the results they’re getting and their position in the league.

“We managed to get above Leicester at the back-end of last season, but it was a big ask for us.

“They are a very good team, with very good individuals, we know that, and a really good manager in Brendan Rodgers.

“So they’re in the race, and there are others that are in the race too.”
