Lampard raps: Chelsea standards are slipping

Frank Lampard feels Chelsea's standards have slipped.

During his stint at Stamford Bridge, Lampard has finished outside the top two on four occasions and he wants to see his beloved club challenging for at least second place this term.

"That's where this club has to be," the midfielder told Chelsea TV ahead of Wednesday's home game against Southampton.

"I hate the idea of standards dropping. We have been up there a long time trying to win the league... a bad year was coming second.

"The minute you drop your standards too far below then you will settle for that and there is a desire and a determination among the players and the staff, from the squad and the club to keep where we want to be."
