Lampard happy with quiet Chelsea market campaign

Frank Lampard says he's happy to see Chelsea's squad refreshed this summer.

Chelsea's two major summer signings have been midfielders with the arrival of Yossi Benayoun and Ramires. There have also been midfielders departing but with the transfer window closed this week and league squads submitted, it is a familiar-looking Chelsea going into the season, and the early results suggest a team totally aware of each other and what to do.

"Continuity is nice," Lampard told the club's website, "especially when you have won a Double but you do want to add to it and make it better although at the same time you don't want to add to it and make it worse.

"There is an element of keeping what you've got and only adding if you are adding better or good squad players. Five first-team squad players have left but we have started off very well and we have to keep that going. If we get injuries to big players we hope we have got the cover there."
