Waiting to win title is like sitting on a lottery ticket: Lampard

Posted By: Staff

London, May 8 (ANI): Chelsea's ace midfielder Frank Lampard has said that waiting to win the Premier League title is like sitting on a winning lottery ticket.

Table toppers Chelsea can clinch their third Premier League championship with a win over Wigan at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

"It's hard to describe the feeling right now but I guess it might be a bit like having a winning lottery ticket and waiting for someone to tell you you've won to make it real," he said.

Lampard said that everyone must stay focused on the job or risk losing the crown. "This is the league but, in effect, we are playing a cup final."

"We have played 37 games this season and now it all comes down to one match. Everything that has gone before almost counts for nothing. To put in a sloppy performance is unthinkable," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Lampard has not allowed himself to dream about what winning a hird title might be like, as there is work still to be done. \

"I'm superstitious and I don't let myself visualise situations. But I remember what it was like to celebrate when we won the league before. I know how good that felt.

"It has been a nervous few weeks. You go into every game knowing any little slip will give heart to Manchester United. When I think about it, this has been a nerve-wracking month. Sunday is the culmination of it," he added. (ANI)
