“I’d like to think they [Chelsea players] are not ignoring what is happening around them. Football has never be on TV more than it has at this time,” said Lampard.
“I expect them to buy into that and want to see what results are happening around us. I think that’s pretty much human nature. On a sporting level I think that means you care and want to see what’s happening.
“And then there has to be a slight switch off and a flip to the fact you focus on yourselves. We can’t control the other games, we’re interested in them but we can certainly control what we do.
“It can fire you up a little bit, seeing what’s happening around you. But the position we’re in means a lot is in our own hands and that’s the main thing.
