Frank Lampard urged Chelsea to try to seal their place in the Champions League knockout phase with two games to spare after helping them beat FC Nordsjaelland 4-0 and take control of Group E.

The European champions left it late to put their Danish counterparts to the sword in Copenhagen on Tuesday night, scoring three times in the final 11 minutes of a flattering 4-0 win, with Juan Mata netting his second goal of the match and David Luiz and Ramires chipping in with goals as well.

Back-to-back victories could cement Chelsea's qualification for the last-16. And Lampard, who returned to captain the Blues after failing to start any of the previous three matches, said: "It is important now that, our next couple of games, we try and get wins again and then we will have that foot into the next stage."
