Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is still confident his side can finish in the top four despite a shock 3-2 loss to West Ham in the Premier League. The result means Manchester United are now just two points behind the Blues with what looks like an easier run-in on paper.
He said: “We are two points ahead of Manchester United, who have been playing fantastic and are on a great run, Wolves are having a great season and they’re behind us, Leicester have had a great season and we’re just behind them.
“It’s about perspective. We are upset because we wanted to win the game, we’re footballers and we’re in a good position.
“So there’s no point in being down but I can’t help but say the truth today which is that it’s a game we should have won tonight.”
Lampard also believes the defeat to the Hammers was typical of what has been happening all year.
He explained: “It’s the story of our season. It’s been a good season but there have been so many of these moments.
