Chelsea ace Lampard: Di Matteo has been good for me

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."
