In a show of the air of perfectionism at Stamford Bridge at the moment, despite Chelsea demolishing West Ham on the weekend 3-0, star midfielder Frank Lampard believes that the quality wasn’t at a top standard for the Blues.
"Maybe 3-0 was not an accurate reflection on the game," Lampard told the official Chelsea website.
“West Ham had some chances, particularly during a phase in the second half when we were 1-0 up and we went sloppy, but I always thought we were the stronger team.
“They are fighting for their lives and it was always going to be difficult, but the quality came out and [Fernando] Torres's goal was the thing that killed the game.”
Torres scored in the 84th minute, as the star striker took advantage of the rain’s affect on the ball, taking Chelsea to 2-0 against West Ham. But despite the hype surrounding Torres’ goal, Lampard contributed to the victory as well, opening up the scoring for Chelsea in the 44th minute with a stylish goal.
“I was pleased with my goal,” Lampard said.
“We weren't at our best but it is not always easy to play great football when there are games coming thick and fast and there is pressure on to win them all at this stage of the season.
“You saw that with Man United earlier on in the day.”
Chelsea are looking to make a last minute push for the title, as the Blues edge to within six points of title leaders Manchester United on the Barclays Premier League table.
With just four games to play and Manchester United to face at their Old Trafford fortress, Chelsea will be looking to build as many points as possible as the Blues defend their title trophy.
