Frank Lampard has admitted that Chelsea are still not favourites to finish in the top four, despite the six-point advantage they held ahead of matchweek 25.

“We were underdogs at the start of the season,” the manager said after the 2-2 draw at Leicester. “Not many people gave us the top four slot and I understand why, and it’s probably the same now. We’ve come to Leicester, who everyone’s raving about, quite rightly, and we’ve got a point. We move on.”

Lampard was quite satisfied with the team’s performance before the break, but not so much with what followed.

He added: “We were the better team in the first half, in terms of how we moved the ball, and we created some gilt-edged chances. In the second half, we weren’t so fluid and they created some good chances themselves.

“Toni Rudiger and Andreas Christensen were really good. Toni was aggressive, the second goal is a really great header, so I’m really pleased with him.

“[Willy Caballero’s] performance was pretty good, he makes a good save, he’s comfortable with his feet there was not much you could do with either goal.”

After earning a point at the King Power Stadium, Chelsea are seven points clear from Manchester United, Tottenham and Wolves all of whom are yet to play their matches.
