We want more than fourth next year: Lampard on Chelsea achievement this season

Lampard is delighted at securing the Champions League football and at the progress of the youth but wants a lot more next term.

"It’s difficult to gauge expectations from within. I will leave that to people on the outside," Frank Lampard told the Blues' official website.

"There were many unknowns at the start of the season - players returning from loans, mostly in the Championship, and we lost the best player in the Premier League in my opinion - and for us to have come forth, which secures Champions League football for next year, and to have seen the development of some of these young players, there are a lot of signs we can work on.

"We know where we’re at. We want more than fourth next year. We have to be humble, work hard and understand it will take time, but what I’ve seen from within is a really good bunch of players that have worked really hard this year, and will continue to do so next."

All things considered, Lampard had a great debut season at Chelsea. Despite losing their best player in Eden Hazard and missing two transfer windows, the Blues made the Premier League top 4 and reached the FA Cup final.

Chelsea did not finish the campaign on a high note, losing 4-1 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League round of 16; however, it's hardly a surprise that the Blues are no match for the Bundesliga giants right now.
