Lampard speaks on Chelsea failing to qualify for champions league after Liverpool loss
Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, has said his team should not be judged this season, on whether or not they qualify for the Champions League.
The Blues needed to avoid defeat against Liverpool on Wednesday night, to clinch England’s third slot for Europe’s elite club competition.
But they were beaten 5-3 at Anfield, as the champions turned on the style before their official coronation.
Chelsea now needs to pick up at least a point against Wolves in their last league fixture on Sunday, to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
“I suppose since restart and knowing how tight it is, it was a feeling it could go this far, I felt we could get over the line tonight.
“I don’t think everything is on Sunday with the whole judgement of where we are, but I think top-four would be a huge bonus,” Lampard told Sky Sports after the game.
