Chelsea can still defend Premier League title: Lampard

March 8th, 2011 - 5:43 pm ICT by ANI  

London, Mar 8(ANI): Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard believes that his team still has a real chance of retaining their Premier League title this season.

Chelsea had started the season in brilliant form and looked to be retaining their title at a canter, but a loss of form saw them slide down the table, with even a Champions League finish seeming a distant possibility at one stage.

However, a welcome return to form has seen them move to within nine points of the leaders Manchester United with one game in hand.

“We have to believe we can do it, though it is still a long shot. We’ve given ourselves a big test,” the Sun quoted Lampard, as saying.

“The teams at the top still have a gap, but it’s nice to be looking upwards rather than fighting to be in the top four. If we can win every game we could have a great chance. But it will be very difficult,” he added.

Chelsea is currently fourth in the League table and level on points with fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur. (ANI)
