Goals from Olivier Giroud, Willian, and Ross Barkley sealed three points for Chelsea as their quest to clinch a top-four spot continues.


Lampard told Sky Sports: "Clean sheet at home and three goals. we played some nice stuff. It's difficult against the low block sometimes and the way we broke it down was good. 


"We could have been better in the second half with our passes but we defended the set-pieces really well. It was a comfortable evening for us.

"When you have two players in those advanced midfield positions against Watford, you have to get players behind their midfield. 


"Mason Mount's pass is wrapped through the front line [in the build-up to the first goal]. I like working with that position because it's where I played and it's important we have quality in that area to unlock the door."
