Jose Mourinho’s men are being roundly tipped to lift the title this season, though Lampard is still hopeful of being able to help his new side retain their champion status.
However, City have recently undergone a five game winless streak that has seen them lose their grip on top spot, but Lampard, who spent a highly successful 13-year spell with the Blues, believes that the season is far from over and his old side may still slip up.
“If you look at the points, the form of Chelsea and the teams behind us, we are going to have to keep winning regularly,” he said.
“It’s common sense that we need to go on a real strong run now.
“All teams have patches, and we’ll be judged at the end of the season.
“There’s 42 points to go and, with the quality we have here, it’s not beyond the realms that we can go and get a lot of wins – and things can change.”
