The Blues are about to enter a frenzied period in what is set to be their longest ever season – with a run of six games in 16 days – and their 200-goal man says he is relishing the run.
“We’ll cope,” said Lampard, who is just two goals away from equalling Bobby Tambling’s all-time Chelsea scoring record. “We’re professionals. I certainly feel better playing games regularly. As long as we rest, train and look after ourselves in between, we’ll cope.
“We have a big squad, the manager will rotate as he sees fit. We have to concentrate on everything because this is the business end of the season and we have to make sure we win something and get Champions League football for next year.”
