A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.

Frank Lampard has told the Daily Express he doesn’t feel there’s any room for bitterness between himself and Chelsea.

Lampard made his return to Stamford Bridge over the weekend playing for Manchester City in the 1-1 draw.

He feels if there’s any bitterness towards him, he’ll deal with it at a later point.

Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has told the Daily Express what he thinks is the key to Chelsea’s success.

The Blues are well placed to win silverware on three fronts by the end of the season, as they deal with a variety of challenges.

The Serbian feels the key is the side finding the extra motivation within themselves to win key games.

Diego Costa has been quoted by the Evening Herald suggesting he did nothing wrong against Liverpool in the League Cup semi-final last week.

Footage appeared to show the Chelsea striker stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can, which resulted in an FA charge.

However, the forward has said the most important thing is that he can go to sleep at night knowing he’s done nothing wrong.
