Chelsea have made a heavily impressive start to the new season under Frank Lampard.
The Blues assembled an expensive team but they were expected to take longer to gel under a relatively inexperienced manager. However, Lampard’s men have outperformed on their expected standard so far making them possible title challengers. With people egging Chelsea on, Lampard remains grounded.
Lampard said, “I don’t know. We’re happy with where we are but I know there’s a long way to go. I don’t think it matters too much about the rhetoric right now because the words are not that important at this point.
“For us at Chelsea, it’s about how much we keep working and understand that consistency over a season is what wins titles, not matches up to the middle of December.”
He continued: “The start of the season was slightly false in terms of some of the performances and results, and at the moment we’re getting very good performances and results.
“The reality is we’re probably somewhere in the middle of that. We need to make sure that consistency is something we find going forward. I’m not sure where we are compared to expectations but I always want more.”
