Former Chelsea player has spoken about Lampard’s team and their chances to win the Premier League in the current season.

Lampard has been supported heavily by

Chelsea

officials as they spent over £200 million in the transfer window for his second season in the club. After his impressive performances in the last season, Lampard is now trying to form a more cohesive squad out of the club’s new signings.

Hakim Ziyech

Kai Havertz

,

Ben Chilwell

,

Thiago Silva

and

Edouard Mendy

have all been added to Chelsea squad and need to be integrated in the team’s tough schedule for the current season. The team has performed well with the new players and the Blues are only four point behind the League’s top position after 7 games. After their impressive match against Rennes in the Champions League, Chelsea must now face

Sheffield United

in their next Premier league game. In a recent interview with Ladbrokes, Frank Sinclair has spoken about the team’s situation and how Lampard’s team can be considered as one of the title contenders for the current Premier League season.

"Initially when Frank Lampard brought in a few new faces I was really excited, but then you have the realisation that it's going to take time for things to work out - especially in an attacking sense,

"You need to give them time to settle into the team.

"It's pretty evident in recent results that they have done that and I can only see Chelsea kicking on and getting stronger throughout the season and I think they can be real contenders for the title because for me, there's no outstanding side.

"Obviously Liverpool are the main team you've got to try and overtake to win the title but with them losing Virgil van Dijk I think it opens things up for a few sides to be involved in the title race.

"I think Chelsea will be in and around it; they'll only get stronger throughout the season and for me they've got arguably the best attacking lines in the country - along with Liverpool.

"The more they get used to playing under Frank, the better they'll get."
