Frank Lampard calls on Chelsea to step it up


Frank Lampard has urged his young Chelsea side to improve after securing progression to the Champions League knock-out stages with a 2-1 win over Lille.

Goals from Tammy Abraham and Cesar Azpilicueta put the Blues in control at half-time, but they failed to kill off the Group H tie.

When former player Loic Remy lashed home with 12 minutes left, it set up a nervy finale at Stamford Bridge, especially with Valencia winning at Ajax.

Another Lille goal would have seen Chelsea drop from second to third, but they held on and reached the round of 16.
