Lampard tells AVB: Play me and I'll get Chelsea into top four

Frank Lampard has told Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas - play me and I'll get us into the top four.

Lampard insisted reclaiming a top-four spot would mean nothing if Chelsea did not stay there.

"There have been a lot of times this season where we've said, 'Right, let's turn the corner now'," he said.

"It can't be a false dawn. We need to carry on.

"Our league form is imperative now, because a club like Chelsea has to stay in the top four.

"We know we can go on a really strong run of wins but we have to do it."

He added, tellingly: "When you play, you can actually do something that can make a bit of a difference."
