Lampard demands focus from his team in last few run-ins

Frank Lampard is pleased with where his team is at for the moment but admits this lads knew that they have to take three points against Norwich after Manchester United and Leicester slipped up.

The 42-year old admits it will tough to ensure champions league qualification but they have to go one game at a time.

"I actually didn't speak to them about [capitalising] today because I think I have mentioned other games around us," 

 “We all saw the game but I don't think I had to say that to them today.

"We know that when the team around you has a moment like that then you have to capitalise. We failed to do that at other times this season.

"All I wanted to do was make sure we did our job tonight. I felt tonight was about us. We were against a team who has just been relegated. With all respect, here at home if we get our job done at home we get three points and we did do that."

The Blues face Liverpool upnext at Anfield  in the premier league; the boss wants focus from his players 

"When you keep coming up against Liverpool away and Wolves at home - they are just two really good opponents," 

We just have to focus on one-by-one, prepare right and show the right attitude.

"I thought we showed it today in a way. Those two games will look completely different to what tonight did but rather than talk about bottle, I want to talk about focus and talk about attitude and then hopefully we have enough to get through but it is going to be tough."

Manchester United are upnext on Sunday in the Emirates FA Cup, and Lampard thinks his side has done so well to still be in the FA Cup and Champions League at the moment 

"I think we can be happy with where we are right now, " 

 "I don’t want to jump the gun because we have games that will be pivotal to where we actually finish, but if we’d said we’d be third and contesting in the FA Cup and the Champions League, [I'd have been happy]."
