Frank Lampard: Has urged Chelsea to get the job done
Frank Lampard has urged Chelsea to get the job done early in their Champions League group.
The holders left it late to put Nordsjaelland to the sword in Copenhagen on Tuesday, scoring three times in the final 11 minutes to earn a flattering 4-0 win.
That final flourish lifted them above Shakhtar Donetsk on goal difference in Group E ahead of their upcoming double-header against the Ukrainians and Lampard is keen to secure progress to the knockout phase with games to spare.
"It is important now that we try and get wins again and then we will have that foot into the next stage," the midfielder, whose team-mates had to settle for a point in their group opener against Juventus, said.
"It was very important to win this considering we drew our first game.
"What happened last year shows how tough it is to win away. We didn't win away in the group stages last season but we went on to win the competition. There are a lot of ways to skin a cat."
