Lampard is prepared to curb his attacking instincts.
Lampard told The Sun: â€œIf itâ€™s the case that Iâ€™m going to be playing as a holding midfielder, and it looks as though it could be that way, then why not?
â€œWe had such great success at the back end of last season with that formation. It gave us a new lease of life. A lot of the players weâ€™ve brought in fit into that role just behind the front man. So it means I play in a slightly different position.
â€œBut I did it last season and Iâ€™ll do it again now. Itâ€™s not a problem. Weâ€™ve got a lot of attacking young midfielders but we must have the strength that the Premier League dictates you need. You arenâ€™t going to win the title with a completely attack-minded team.
â€œThatâ€™s normally our strength â€” weâ€™ve got a very solid goalkeeper, back four and midfield. If we can get that blend right, then we can really do something and I donâ€™t think it will affect my ability to score goals too much.
â€œIâ€™m going to have to be more selective with my runs into the box."
