Lampard: Chelsea still hunting title

Chelsea match-winner Frank Lampard says his side are still dreaming of winning the Premier League title after securing a late win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After Ramires' opener was cancelled out by Stephen Ward with just six minutes remaining, Lampard, who was earlier luck to escape being sent off after catching Adam Hamill, tapped home the winner with a minute to play.

A rough run of form which saw The Blues winless in their last four games had all but extinguished their title chances, but slip ups from Manchester's top two gives Lampard reason to believe the race is still on.

"[We can't] drop our standards and just think 'let's just fight for fourth' or whatever," he said.

"We're too good for that. In my eyes we should be challenging for the top.

"The minute we don't set those standards we won't be the Chelsea we've been.

"Look at the talent there is. I get frustrated that we're not fighting for top place at the minute and the points difference there is."

Lampard has often cut a frustrated figure this season, with Andre Villas-Boas often preferring the likes of Raul Meireles and Oriol Romeu to the England international in the club's big games.

"I like to play 90 minutes, I can't hide that," Lampard added.

"[But] he's the boss; he picks the team. But when I play I feel I can do things like I did [against Wolves] and I'll keep trying to do them."
