Lampard savours win but says Chelsea must ‘stay grounded’

Frank Lampard savoured the return of Chelsea fans and his team’s 3-1 victory over Leeds.

The Blues came from behind at Stamford Bridge, where 2,000 fans were there to see them move to the top of the Premier League.

Those supporters will no doubt be hopeful of a genuine title challenge, but boss Lampard called for calm.

“It was great to have them back. Their input was huge – the noise they made was huge,” he said.

“My job is to know that it’s a long season. The next question is how consistent can we be and how much can we improve? I believe there’s a lot more we can do.

“Enjoy the evening. But at the same time we need to make sure we stay grounded.”

It was a great night for Chelsea bar an injury to Hakim Ziyech, who went off after hurting his hamstring while helping set up Olivier Giroud’s equaliser.

“It’s a hamstring injury which we’ll find out the severity of in the next couple of days,” Lampard said.

“It’s disappointing, obviously, going into this busy period.”
