Lampard wants Chelsea to go for the win vs Wolves

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said that his team will be playing for the win when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the final game of the Premier League season.

The Blues needed a point against Liverpool in midweek to cement their Champions League berth, but they were unable to do so as they suffered a 5-3 defeat.

The west London outfit go into the final game of the campaign against Wolves needing a draw but Lampard has insisted that the Blues will approach the game with the aim of winning it.

"No, we will approach the game to win it. There is no other way to approach a game of football. We will do that, prepare right, respect our opponent. They are very good, we have seen that all season, we are aware of the situation but we will try to win," He told

Should the Blues fail to pick up anything from the contest, they could be leapfrogged by Leicester City. The Foxes would need a minimum of one point to jump ahead of the Blues for the fourth spot on goal difference.
