Lampard: “we can’t get too excited with top four finishes”

Chelsea defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers to book a place in next season’s Champions league campaign.

A Sensational Mason Mount Freekick and a Clever finish from Olivier Giroud saw off the threat of wolves who came to Stamford Bridge needing three points inorder to qualify for Europe.

Speaking to SkySports after the game, Chelsea Manager Frank Lampard is not overly excited at qualifying for the champions league insisting a team like Chelsea should be looking to improve but admits this is a great step towards progression.

“Champions League qualification means a great deal to me but at Chelsea we can’t get too excited with top four finishes,” 

“When we first came in we maybe weren’t considered there but what we’ve done this season is take the opportunity to bring in the younger players and improve the existing players.

"There were a lot of unknowns when I came in, could we move forward without Eden Hazard. We knew we had lost a massive player. We’ve a real spirit within the group now and it’s a real team effort now.

“Myself and the staff want to improve every time, the challenge now is to see what more we can do next season.”

He was also pleased with how his side dealt with the threat of wolves particularly the level of focus from his side.

“They’re a really good side to play against, but the discipline of my team today was fantastic. Sometimes we haven’t had that at home this season,” 

“Mason’s strike was pure quality, Giroud was class as always.”
