Frank Lampard: This is what Chelsea dressing room will be like
The Chelsea legend believes Antonio Conte's dressing room will be on fire after Sunday's 3-0 win at Everton
Frank Lampard believes the Chelsea dressing room will be on fire after Sunday’s 3-0 win at Everton.
The Blues seized their chance to move seven points clear of their closest title rivals Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the north London derby later on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea broke the deadlock in the 66th minute with Spain international Pedro Rodriguez with a stunning long-range strike to settle the west London side’s nerves at Goodison Park.
England international Gary Cahill scored in successive games to extend Chelsea’s lead on the blue half of Merseyside before Willian came off the bench to extend the leaders’ advantage.
Chelsea’s lead was reduced to four points after Tottenham eased to a comfortable win against north London rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea’s record goal-scorer Lampard offered an insight into the probable mood in Conte’s dressing room following their latest win in the title race.
“The dressing room is going to be on fire. They knew the importance of this game and Everton didn’t really turn up. On paper it was the game we all looked at. The feeling in there is going to be, we are ‘that’ close,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
Chelsea are looking to win a second title in three seasons.
