Lampard speaks on Chelsea's brilliant away form

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that the club's recent away winning streak has result from a strong work ethic within the first-team squad.

The west London giants recently secured a 2-1 triumph over Watford on the road and that saw them equal their best-ever winning streak (7) which was achieved prior to the Premier League era.

Speaking in a press conference, Lampard said that his team have been working hard with and without the ball, and that has contributed towards their sparkling form away from home.

"I don't think there's one absolute thing that's making us win, they're just working hard, the way we're working off the ball. Maybe away from home teams slightly open up against us slightly more," he told via

The Blues are presently third in the league standings with 23 points but they could be leapfrogged by Leicester City, should the Foxes win their game at Crystal Palace this afternoon.

The west London giants are scheduled to entertain Ajax in the Champions League in midweek and a victory would surely firm their prospects of reaching the knockout phase of the competition.
