Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is convinced the Blues have got an advantage on their Premier League rivals to face Champions League.

According to the Stamford Bridge legend, who was one of Chelsea heroes in Champions League success back in 2012, the Blues structure is better than other English teams – Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Spurs – facing the same competition:

“When I look at the other English teams in the Champions League, some of them will struggle at the back, whereas Chelsea have a great base.

“The structure that Conte set up last season with three at the back clearly works as they won the title and they have added a few players in midfield”.

Chelsea are working hard to sign some new players before the end of this summer transfer window and Blues legend Frank Lampard believes the board have to listen to manager Antonio Conte and try to satisfy his requests.

There is a suggestion that Chelsea managers don’t have much say in signings, but that isn’t the case from what I understand about the club and Conte certainly deserves a big say in the signings that are made there”. – Lampard told Yahoo Sports Uk “The signings they have made have been positive, but some big players have left or are about to leave and he knows he needs a bigger squad. I think that is the reason for his frustration and we have seen that emotion coming out of him over the last few weeks. Of course Conte will have a big say on the players coming in. There will be a back and forward between the manager, his staff and the people in charge of getting the players in and you would hope that by the end of this transfer, everyone will get what they want. He is a very driven manager, we saw that last year and it is clear he wants to add to the squad and wanted more players in by now.”

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard considers Nemanja Matic to Manchester United “strange”.

The former Blues midfielder was surprised to see the Serbian midfielder moving to Manchester United, with Chelsea providing a key player to a rival.

Lampard commented this move speaking to BT Sport:

It’s a strange one.

“I think he was such a huge part of Chelsea’s play last year. Kante and Matic were the base of the midfield and let the wing-backs fly on.

“Obviously Fabregas was a big player for them too and [with] Bakayoko, it remains to be seen if he can be that positional player Matic was.

“One of the frustrations is that, and I think Conte will want to bring in someone else in midfield.”

Speaking to BT Sport, Chelsea legend Frank Lampard hailed Victor Moses’ performance today at Wembley.

The Nigerian player scored The Blues goal but this wasn’t enough to defeat Arsenal at to win the Community Shield.

“He came at a young age, I think he had a year under Rafa Benitez when he got a few minutes but then he got loaned out for three years on the trot”. – Lampard said – “Antonio Conte came in and gave him a new lease of life. He gave him a role as a wing-back and you saw a player today who was a massively important player for them.”

Chelsea legend John Terry left the Blues after 22 years among youth teams and first team: yesterday his signing for Aston Villa was announced, with the former Blues skipper admitting he didn’t want to join a Premier League side to not face Chelsea.

Now, Terry admits he would love to return at Stamford Bridge as a manager:

That’s a goal. Me and Lamps [Frank Lampard] have had those conversations. Do you dream too big? I don’t think you can ever dream too big. I’ve always wanted to be the very best and if that’s in management then Chelsea’s the one. That would be incredible but I realise as well you can’t go in somewhere like Chelsea as your first job.

“You need to go and learn, whether that’s in the academy like Stevie [Gerrard] is doing. It’s difficult to get jobs. I see a lot of players from my generation not walking into jobs that maybe I thought they would get. So I think you need to go out and do your work and put your minutes in on the pitch and make your mistakes that no one sees so that when you do go in, you’re kind of ready.”

According to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard to extend Antonio Conte‘s deal this summer will be the best signing for the Blues in this transfer window.

Speaking to ESPN, Super Frank said:

“Antonio would be their most important signing. For me, he was their man of the season. You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit.

“You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well. I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.’’

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard spoke ahead of the FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley. The former midfielder told Standard Sport: “I think it could be a tight game; Chelsea are favourites on paper and rightly so, but they’ll have to perform on the day to overcome an Arsenal side who have strength in their team.”

Arsenal beat Chelsea in their home game at the Emirates Stadium in September: “I think the way we started the [home] game in the first half was very good Aaron Ramsey said – We won the game in the first half really. We were very quick, we counter-attacked well, closed them down, got about them and everything seemed to come together on that day”.
