I'm very lucky to play for a great attacking side like Chelsea - Frank Lampard

Midfielder happy with his team-mates...
Frank Lampard insists that he is "very lucky" to be playing with a group of players like the ones at Chelsea.

The midfielder joined the Blues in 2001 after spending six years at West Ham United, and has since carved out a strong status for himself at Stamford Bridge.

The 32-year-old scored 27 goals last season alone, and gave tactical credit to manager Carlo Ancelotti for scoring as many as he did during the campaign.

"I'm very lucky to play in a team with such good movement, especially when we're really firing," Lampard told Chelsea magazine.

"Defenders are worried about [Didier] Drogba and [Nicolas] Anelka, especially when they're running in behind players and pushing the defensive line back, because that opens up space for me to arrive when the ball comes into the box.

"The easiest way I ever score goals is when we win the ball and move it quickly forward. What's the point in winning the ball back and just keeping it?"

The England international also believes that a win is a win irrespective of the score line, despite the west Londoners averaging almost five goals a game in the Premier League.

"The fans enjoy it, we enjoy it, but it's not reality winning sixes, sevens and eights," he said. "There was a time last year when we couldn't score. We've got to be ready for teams who shut up shop against us so that we have to find a way to make a breakthrough.

"Those are the games where you have to find a goal from nowhere and be happy with a 1-0 win."
