Chelsea vs Norwich: Chelsea coach, Frank Lampard, has requested that his players stand up and be counted in their top four chase, ahead of “important period.”
The demand for Champions League football in the chase was cranked up after the suspension was lifted by Manchester City.
The verdict means only a top four finish will guarantee a spot in Europe’s top club competition next season.
Chelsea have their fate in their own hands with three games left, although the 3-0 defeat at Sheffield United on Saturday underlined issues that Lampard has detected throughout the season.
Norwich ’s visit on Tuesday night, Lampard said: “I’ve got big personalities and there will be big personalities in the team. They need to stand up.
“Show the quality they’ve shown for big parts of the season. I trust they will do and because we’re at the business end it’s very important that they do. It cannot be understated how big mentality is.
“How big attitude is. When you talk about players it is very easy and natural to look at talent but you also have to look at attitude and character within the team.
“We’re in a good place but it’s something we can improve.”
