Frank Lampard has also insisted that Chelsea will be back very soon among the big clubs in world football.

However, The three-time Premier League winner with Chelsea, Lampard insists a lot has changed since they were competing with the top clubs.
“It’s a work in progress. It is not the idea for Chelsea. Over the last 20 years we have had players like Eden Hazard, John Terry, Diego Costa, Petr Cech among others,” Lampard said to BT Sport.
“They were all at Chelsea fighting for the Premier League title every year, reaching finals and semi-finals always.
“We know we are not yet there now.
“We lost our best player in Eden Hazard. People would not have commended finishing fourth for Chelsea, we want more than that but we feel we have achieved something with what we have. Now it’s time to think about where to improve.”
So far, Chelsea have signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner ahead of next season.
The Blues have also been linked with Kai Havertz, but they have conceded goals at a shocking rate this season.
Chelsea let in 79 goals in 55 matches across all competitions in the 2019/20 campaign, a match average of 1.44, their worst stats since the 1990/91 season
