Frank Lampard has admitted that he has been thoroughly impressed by Chelsea’s form under new manager Antonio Conte this season.

The Blues have been the Premier League’s top performing team this term, with the west London side currently leading the way at the top of the table.

Chelsea are currently seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham as they chase the title in Conte’s first campaign in charge at the club.

The west London side are also due to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-finals of the FA Cup later this months as they chase a domestic double.

And former Chelsea star Lampard has been thoroughly impressed by what he has seen from Chelsea this season under their new boss.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Goals on Sunday, Lampard said: “It’s an incredible turnaround [from last season].

“What’s really impressed me about the way they’re playing is how they know their jobs.

“That system, people are now emulating it and playing three at the back. Chelsea do it brilliantly in all positions.”
