Former Chelsea star has spoken about Lampard’s confidence and how he will face a great challenge at Stamford Bridge.

The last transfer window was a crazy ride for


fans as the English club surprised everyone by spending over £200 million in the transfer window. Roman Abramovich reinforced his team’s squad by adding new star players such as

Edouard Mendy


Thiago Silva


Ben Chilwell


Kai Havertz


Hakim Ziyech

, and

Timo Werner

. Lampard’s team were not in a good form for the first few weeks of the season but after that preparation period, Chelsea started their fine performances before the international break and are now considered as one of the main contenders for the League title. Former Chelsea Midfielder Gus Poyet has spoken about Lampard’s ambition to face the responsibility to bring major trophies to the club.

“He used young players who go through these adrenaline periods of doing brilliantly and then not so well.

“Expectations have changed now because Chelsea spent big money in the summer. Frank has embraced that, no more transition period.

“Is it more pressure? Give me pressure with better players any day. I'd always prefer a chairman who spends £200 million.”
