Chelsea legend Frank Lampard says the current team can be proud of last night’s victory at Atletico Madrid.

Speaking after the match, legendary Chelsea midfielder Lampard was full of praise for his former side.

When asked whether there has been a better performance from an English side away in Europe, he said: “Can’t think of one, Eden Hazard was spectacular. But I don’t think the performance was spectacular it was so professional, the discipline in how they set up and credit to the manager for that.

“Their work rate and closing down against one of the strongest teams, who are usually closing the other team down and then the quality of their forward play at certain times.

“Listen they didn’t score loads of goals, I don’t think anybody does there. But to win there and perform as well as they did was huge statement from Chelsea.”
