Ex-Chelsea goalkeeper: 'Lampard knows how to win the Premier League'

Tue 08 December 2020 | 17:39

Former Aston Villa, Man Utd, and Chelsea goalkeeper see no reason why Chelsea can't win the Premier League after such an expensive summer for the Blues' shareholders.

Mark Bosnich

believes Lampard comprehends how to win Premier League titles and

Chelsea

must be viewed as "genuine contenders" with a club legend in charge.

The Blues have situated themselves among the leaders in what is turning out to be an acutely challenging race for England's top clubs in 2020-21. 

After hefty investments at Stamford Bridge during summer, they are harvesting pleasant results, with Chelsea unbeaten through their last 13 games in all rivalries. 

Newcomers -, for example, Edouard Mendy, Thiago Silva, Timo Werner, and Hakim Ziyech – are beginning to sparkle, with the Blues ascending to third place in the

Premier League

table accordingly with only two points behind

Liverpool

and

Tottenham

I think they are genuine contenders,” former Blues goalkeeper Bosnich told Sky Sports

“I think the addition of Mendy in goal, Thiago Silva at the back and some of the other players, players like Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic, they are slowly but surely getting to grips with the intensity of the Premier League.

“I thought it at the start of the season and nothing has changed my mind that they are genuine contenders.

“It’s going to be very difficult for them, and I think Frank and his staff will know that, but they are in very good hands with someone who has won things before and someone who knows exactly what it takes to win.

“That is so important because when people talk about philosophy or identity, that’s all well and good but I’d be surprised if there is not one manager in the world that hasn’t got a philosophy or identity.

“The bottom line is that it’s about, at the top level, winning games and winning trophies. There are very few of them about and there are not many around, be that managers or ex-players, who can pass on that knowledge.”

Chelsea, who are now through to the last 16 of the Champions League, will be back in European motion on Tuesday against Krasnodar before then heading out to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.
