Chelsea ace Frank Lampard is happy to be regarded as a title contender.

With 19 points taken from a possible 21, Lampard believes we should now be widely considered genuine title challengers.

He told "It was quite nice being under the radar early in the season. We had a bad season at times last season and it fell away and we started to concentrate on the Champions League, and we all know what happened there. We showed what we can do and we have added top quality players into the team and we still have a spine here, so hopefully we have nice mix to make a big challenge in the league."
