Frank Lampard says Chelsea must start winning at home

Frank Lampard insists Chelsea must stop the rot at Stamford Bridge if they are to maintain their chances of securing a top-four spot this season.

Chelsea have lost three out of their last four home games in the Premier League, having previously dropped points in west London to West Ham, Leicester and Sheffield United earlier in the season.

Lampard’s side have largely impressed on the road, with recent victories away at Tottenham and Arsenal, but the Blues boss knows winning at home is vital to his team’s chances of securing Champions League football next season.

Burnley visit Chelsea on Saturday afternoon with Lampard keen to get back to winning ways in the Premier League and he says they must be more clinical in front of goal.

“We want to win at home, we are striving to get in the top four – I think it would be a big achievement if we can do it and if you can’t win your home games of course that is going to be something that compromises that,” he said.

“Every home game you would want to win, within reason, you understand how tough the league is and nothing is given, but we are in a spot and I don’t mind the pressure. I don’t mind talking about it because I think we have to accept it is there.
