Chelsea ace Lampard: Man City must learn to cope with envy

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard feels Manchester City are becoming victims of envy around the Premiership.

Given the vitriol aimed at Chelsea after Roman Abramovich's takeover five years previously, Lampard should know.

"I think their biggest problem is what we found, that when you've got money everyone wants to beat you," he told The Times. "When you come to town, it's a much bigger game.

"I don't think it's as cut-throat as jealousy, but there is certainly an envy to it. Everyone was envious of us. When you're actually the team that has money, everybody wants to bring you down a little bit."
