Chelsea boss Lampard admits using international break to 'take stock'

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits he used the international break to "take stock".

With 13 matches in the space of 43 days on the horizon, it will be the last chance for some time for Lampard to draw breath.

"I have taken stock," he said.

"There were some points we lost earlier in the season that we were frustrated with but looking back I think maybe that was par for the course in terms of where we were as a team, with new players coming in and some injuries.

"The international break came at a time when we were playing well so I'm pretty happy with our current form but the important thing is we don't get carried away. I've used the time for reflection and to review where we're at. There are lots of improvements we can make so that's our next focus."
