Frank Lampard says Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti wasn't getting carried away after their 7-0 thrashing of Stoke City.

The win sent Chelsea back to the top of the table and sets them up nicely for their trip to Liverpool this weekend.

"He (Ancelotti) is laid back and he is fairly calm but he doesn't take his eye off the targets," England international Lampard told chelseafc.com. "He speaks with authority and lets us know we have to concentrate and give every ounce in every minute of every game we have left.

"The manager won't show too much tension at the moment because you don't want players showing tension, so we're relaxed but we're focused, and that's how he is.

"He's been like that all season, he hasn't changed and that's because he's been in this situation before, he's won Champions Leagues and Serie A before, so he understands he doesn't want to show tension but at the same time he has that focus."
