"What theyâ€™ll have to do is keep that up through the whole season," said Lampard. â€śThatâ€™s what weâ€™ve done when we won leagues and what Manchester United have done in the last two seasons.
â€śWhether Liverpool can do it remains to be seen. But theyâ€™re definitely one of the strong contenders.â€ť
Lamps insists Chelsea have got the Stamford Bridge loss out of their system and dismissed talk of a meltdown.
He added: â€śIt doesnâ€™t rank up there with any defeat.
â€śBecause weâ€™re professional and weâ€™re proud of the home record we had, to lose it against a team that is vying for the title with you is obviously disappointing.
â€śBut you canâ€™t compare it to losing a Champions League semi-final or a final because that is a dead-end, finished, out of it â€” thereâ€™s no way back.
â€śWeâ€™re mature enough and certainly experienced enough from our last four or five years contending for the title to know that if you lose a game after nine matches, itâ€™s certainly far from over.
â€śAnd we believe in ourselves so I think you have a very disappointing patch after the game and then as you sit back and reflect on it you realise that a lot can be done.â€ť
