​Chelsea hero Nevin explains Lampard's secret weapon

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has spoken about the secret weapon in the hands of manager Frank Lampard.

Nevin spoke about the style of the team and the intensity of their play this season.

And he believes that a "secret weapon" that Lampard possesses could be his ability to get maximum effort from every single player.

While Chelsea have issues with parts of their game, Nevin cannot help but admire the work ethic of the team in every game under Lampard.

In an interview with the club website, Nevin said: "For all the positives we have enjoyed so far this season, including the exciting style, the large number of goals and the hope that has been brought for the future, it is the total effort we love.

"Every single player has been pressed to give their best every time by a coach who was exactly like that throughout his career with the Blues.

"It may well be that this is Frank's secret weapon, one that I can promise you not every coach has in his armoury.

"We Chelsea fans in the stands and around the world admire, like and respect Frank.

"It would appear that everybody in that dressing room feels the same way too.

"Long may it last because that is precisely how you get the best out of any group of players."
