Frank Lampard maintains Chelsea must adopt the mentality of champions each and every day if they are to wrestle the Barclays Premier League title back from Manchester United.

Lampard - who will skipper the Blues again on Sunday against Birmingham in the absence of John Terry - firmly believes mental strength will play its part in the title race this season.

"We want to win the league back this year - we need that belief and desire," Lampard declared. "We need to remind ourselves every day we want the league back. When you lift the cups, that is what you remember."
