Following the win in west London last night, Lampard told BBC One: "I'm really proud. Liverpool are the best team in the league and what they are doing is incredible. So for us to put in a performance like that, the effort, the quality was something special. We know we've got a long way to go but you have to celebrate those moments."

On Chelsea's midfield prodigy Billy Gilmour's display on the night, the 41-year-old replied: "What an incredible performance for a young player. He was a calm head in that first five or 10 minutes. He's a throwback of a midfielder. Can you put your foot in? Yes. Can you make angles to play the passes? Yes. He's only slight in stature but he's huge in personality. He deserves people to talk about him after a performance like that."

When quizzed on recalling goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga into the starting line up, Lamaprd said: "I was really pleased for Kepa. It's not easy because all players want to play and a goalkeeper gets scrutinised more than any other position and he made some good saves. He's shown good character and he played well."
