After loosing back to back Premier League games and falling to 8th in the Table, it was very important for Chelsea to win the derby yesterday against West Ham especially as they have another derby against Arsenal on Boxing Day.
The Blues did well to win 3-0 against West Ham and now a much bigger test awaits them at the Emirates stadium in four days time and while Arsenal are having a very bad run having failed to win a single Premier League game for about 2 months, Lampard feels they are still one of the best quality teams and Chelsea have to prepare strongly for them.
Speaking about facing Arsenal after the match against West Ham, Lampard said:
I see it as a team with great quality and a class manager who are in a tough moment. That is a really dangerous combination to go against so we have to prepare right.
