Lampard puts winning Premiership with Chelsea ahead of Champions League

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is putting winning the Premiership ahead of their Champions League target.

The Chelsea and England midfielder wants to experience the feeling of being part of the best team in the country again.

Lampard, 31, admitted: "The Champions' League is definitely something I want to win at least once in my career but, for me, the league is where we need to get to the consistency levels we had a few years ago.

"We were dominant for two years but Manchester United have been playing fantastically for three years. There's a feeling among the players that we want to go one step further and get consistency back in the league and then push on for the Champions' League.

"It's a lovely feeling to be the best team in your country - and I want to get that back. Lampard reckons this could be the biggest season of his life, as it ends with the World Cup in South Africa - with England drawn in Group C with Algeria, Slovenia and the USA."
