Lampard ready for 'massive' clash

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard insists Chelsea have turned "a little corner" since they were hammered by Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Chelsea's 3-0 drubbing by Sir Alex Ferguson's side earlier this month was a wake-up call for Luiz Felipe Scolari's side and victories over Stoke and Middlesbrough have since lifted the Blues into second place.

The Blues go to Anfield on Sunday in confident mood and Lampard said: "We have turned a little corner since we lost at Manchester United. We have got some good results since then. We took a bit of a knock to our confidence but we believe we can win."

He added: "We are back in second position which is nice and teams are going to drop points.

"They have done all season, we have, Liverpool have, Manchester United have, so we have a chance and it's a massive game coming up."

However, Lampard does not believe their Anfield clash is a 'must win' fixture.

"We want to win, we don't want to lose, but there's no 'have to' yet because there is still quite a fair way to go," said Lampard.

"We shouldn't go there thinking we have to win in desperation."
