Lampard happy to have had two ‘important’ weeks of training as he bids to improve Chelsea fortunes

    Frank Lampard says he has been pleased to have had two ‘important’ weeks of training with Chelsea as he bids to turn the club’s faltering fortunes around.

    Chelsea face Fulham this weekend in a west London derby at Stamford Bridge with the Blues having won just once in their past six league fixtures, with Lampard’s side having dropped to ninth in the Premier League and six points adrift of the top four.

    Chelsea secured a morale-boosting 4-0 victory over Morecambe in the FA Cup’s third round last weekend and Lampard has discussed the importance of maintaining a positive atmosphere around the club, admitting he has seen a ‘good reaction’ from his players in training ahead of Saturday’s clash with the Cottagers.

    “My concern has been training and the atmosphere around that because when you haven’t won for a few games it’s clear the players need to stay positive,” Lampard said at his pre-match press conference.

    “That starts from the staff. I have seen good reactions from the players. They have worked hard.

    “We have had two pretty long weeks of training for pretty much the first time this season. We have had a chance to work in training on bigger elements of our game. We have worked at a really physical level which is important if you want to improve as a team.”

    Lampard has spoken of the importance of work on the training ground having had a full week to prepare for the clash with Fulham, admitting his side have had a chance to ‘refocus’ as they bid to return to winning ways.

    “No matter what squad you have, and particularly if you have young or new players, you need time to work,” added Lampard.

    “Last season we had that, and even with a young and imbalanced squad we had a long pre-season and moments in the season where we could work.

    “Those two weeks have given us a chance to refocus on the basics of our game, what we are and how we want to play. I just want to see those things come through.”
