Chelsea face Brentford in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard is still searching for his first win since returning to the club earlier this month following a run of four straight losses.

Chelsea are sat in 11th place and have virtually nothing to play for in their final seven Premier League games of the season after getting knocked out of the Champions League last week.

Lampard won’t tolerate his side dropping off between now and May 28, and reminded his players of the personal pride they need to have whilst wearing the Chelsea shirt.

Ahead of the London derby, Lampard said: “I don’t have a mentality that there’s nothing to play for. I was fortunate enough to be part of the teams that were challenging for the stuff towards the end of the season, that’s not a given. The fact we’ve been fortunate at Chelsea to have that for 15-20 years now, there are a lot of clubs, big status in the Premier League that don’t do that, we do. That’s why we feel it a bit more.

“It’s important that there’s a reality that when you have long careers, I’ve had one as a player and now a coach, you won’t compete absolutely every season, it’s not a given. It comes down again to your personal pride, responsibility, and wearing the shirt.

“We’ve now got seven games, four against the top four, three away from home. The run-in is really tough, there’s no doubt about that. My interest is to see how the players react to that one because they’re tough games. There’s always something on those games, I understand that, and the players have to understand that.”
