Lampard - Chelsea title hopes still alive

02 March 2011 03:30
Frank Lampard claims Chelsea can follow their dramatic turnaround against Manchester United with a sensational comeback in the Barclays Premier League title race. But the England midfielder warned his team-mates Tuesday's 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge would "mean nothing" if they did not now go on a winning run. Chelsea dented United's hopes of deposing them as champions and kept their own paper-thin hopes of retaining their crown alive after coming from behind at Stamford Bridge. "Does this victory help Arsenal win the title? If Arsenal keep winning, but that's not a given either," said Lampard. "United have enough experience to know it is a marathon and there is a long way to go. But we don't really care about anyone else. "If we keep winning all our games, we'll be in with a shout. It was important for ourselves to win this for our own confidence but there is still a big gap between ourselves and United. "Statements don't matter unless they're backed up. We need to go on from here. We normally go on a late run at this time of the season and that is what we hope to do now."
