Frank Lampard set UCl target.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has set a target for his side in the Uefa Champions League this season as they play their first game tonight.

Chelsea will face Spanish side Valencia tonight at Stamford Bridge and we expect the game to come with mixed feelings looking at Chelsea form so far in the Premier League this season.

Speaking ahead of the tie, Frank Lampard has now revealed that his target for the competition is to get to the knock out stage.

'I think the target is to qualify from the group. It’s a tough group but I have enough believe in the players,' He said

'The Champions League is almost in two parts. The group phase before Christmas and the knockouts after.'

'I believe we can get through but we’re aware it’s going to be tough. If you get through it’s up for grabs in the next phase.'

'I’m confident we can get through but fully aware of the dangers of the group.'

Concerning the game against Valencia tonight, the Chelsea manager reveals he expect a tough game.

'I’m expecting a tough match,' he continued

'It’s not easy to analyse a game against Barcelona as they make it hard for everybody.'

'They’re very organised and hard to break down and can be very dangerous on the counter-attack. It will be a good test.'
