Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says that owner Roman Abramovich's investment in the club has taken it to a another level. "When I came, the team was strong - OK, so we weren't quite in first place but we weren't far away, but he took us to a world level," said the 35-year-old, who arrived from West Ham in 2001.

"He's in the dressing-room with us and is genuinely interested in what the players think about the games we play, how we're playing and the players' views on all things Chelsea."
