Frank Lampard has warned Chelsea that they will have to step their game up if they want to challenge for the Champions League title this season after their 3-3 draw with Roma.

The Blues had led 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night but they were pegged back in a thrilling game in west London as they had to settle for a point from the game.

Chelsea have struggled to find consistent form in recent weeks and the Blues are without a win in three games in all competitions.

And Blues legend Lampard feels that the west London side were lucky to get away with a draw against the Serie A side on Wednesday night.

Speaking on BT Sport after the game, former England star Lampard said: “I think Roma’s performance was spot-on as an away team, possession-wise, they got their deserved goals.”

He added: “They [Chelsea] have got good results and are in a good position in the group.

“They’ve certainly got away with one tonight.”

Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways in the top flight when they take on Watford at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The west London side suffered a shock 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace last weekend to leave them nine points behind leaders Manchester City after just eight games of the new campaign.

Chelsea have not won the Premier League title since their famous triumph under Roberto Di Matteo back in 2012.
