Frank Lampard has revealed he wants his Chelsea to finish third place and not necessary help Liverpool secure league title.
The Blues welcome champions Manchester City on Thursday night.
If Liverpool beat Crystal Palace today, City will need to win at Stamford Bridge to keep the title race alive for another week at least.
Lampard’s men need the points themselves, to cement their place in the top four.
Frank Lampard reacting, “I have had absolutely no thought of Liverpool’s situation, it makes no odds to us at all.
“We respect Liverpool and Manchester City as two fantastic teams, in the last two to three seasons they’ve been dominant, but we can only look at what this match means for us,” Lampard told a Zoom press conference today.
