Lampard wants to silence critics

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea to deliver the ultimate response to their critics by clinching their place in next season's Champions League before winning it in Munich.

The 3-2 aggregate win against Barcelona got caretaker boss Roberto Di Matteo's Blues 90 minutes from Champions League glory. His priority has been Champions League football next season. Now four points off the last qualification spot with four games remaining, Chelsea are closer to getting there via the competition than the Barclays Premier League.

Lampard said: "By the time of the game, that'll be too late. So, if we don't win it and we're not fourth... We're on a decent run of performances for sure, but the last thing we want to do now is lower our standards in between. We need to keep this roll going."
