Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists no-one is getting carried away with their title chances.

Chelsea meet Everton this weekend.

Lampard said, "I don't know. We're happy with where we are but I know there's a long way to go. I don't think it matters too much about the rhetoric right now because the words are not that important at this point.

"For us at Chelsea, it's about how much we keep working and understand that consistency over a season is what wins titles, not matches up to the middle of December."

Lampard was also asked today whether his team have jumped ahead of his expectations.

He continued: "The start of the season was slightly false in terms of some of the performances and results, and at the moment we're getting very good performances and results.

"The reality is we're probably somewhere in the middle of that. We need to make sure that consistency is something we find going forward. I'm not sure where we are compared to expectations but I always want more."
