Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says manager Roberto di Matteo deserves great credit for their revival. Chelsea are alive in two Cup competitions and still have a chance of a top four finish.

"He [Di Matteo] has been very good with me, I've played more and when you play you're confident and you're able to give something to the team," Lampard told

"He's made a big change for everyone, the atmosphere among the squad, but on the pitch the results speak for themselves and Robbie deserves to take a lot of credit for that. It's not easy to be a number two for a while and then take over, he loves this club, he's got it in his heart and that's a great thing to see and everybody's reacted to that."
