Hard work for Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard claims Chelsea's strong away form this season is mainly down to the players "working hard" in games.

The Blues head coach watched as goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic helped secure a 2-1 Premier League win at bottom-of-the-table Watford on Saturday night.

The victory was a club-record seventh successive away win in all competitions and Lampard gave his views on why Chelsea have been strong on the road.
He said: "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.
"Today wasn't one of them but that gives us the opportunity with the pace we have that we can counter-attack and create chances, whereas maybe at Stamford Bridge teams can make it more difficult to do that with such freedom. Maybe that's why we have been so free-flowing away from home."
Lampard also backed Pulisic to continue scoring goals after he found the net at Vicarage Road, a week after his hat-trick at Burnley.
He added: "I love that Christian scored a goal from four yards out.
"He could have decided not to go the extra mile and that ball flashes across the face and no one gets on the end of it.

"If he continues doing that sort of thing then the goals will rack up. His general performance was top as well."
