EPL: After 1-0 victory over Norwich, Lampard talks on Chelsea qualifying for Champions League
After watching his side defeat Norwich City 1-0, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard acknowledged that there was a “nervy feeling” to improve their hold on third position in the Premier League.
In the last touch in the first half, Olivier Giroud headed in easily to gain maximum points for Lampard’s men.
From their remaining two games, the Blues now need four points – away to Liverpool and home.
Asked to evaluate the race to win a spot in the Champions League, Lampard said to Sky Sports: “It’s a tough one to call. We know our games are difficult but everyone else has tough games as well. It’s the Premier League and that’s not easy.
“We take our three points, we focus on ourselves, we can sit down and watch the other teams this week and focus on our FA Cup semi-final at the weekend [against Manchester United], but there’s obviously still work to do.
“There’s a nervy feeling for understandable reasons, so I’m pleased. We went a bit slow for about 10 or 15 minutes in the second half. Then we began moving the ball again and there was a bit of personality in our game today.
but we can improve.”
