Liverpool kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 4-1 win over Norwich City at Anfield, while Chelsea suffered a 4-0 loss to Manchester United in Frank Lampard’s first game in charge.

“They have a clear way of playing,” he told Liverpool’s official website. “It’s a football-playing side, it’s flexible, they have different formations and stuff like this and I like what I saw to be honest, but yes, they lost 4-0 – that’s then a really hard lesson.

“United was pretty clinical and that’s how football can be, but of course we don’t have lesser respect because they lost 4-0 against Man United. No, it’s the other way around – especially in the first 60 minutes they were just really good.

“They are a good football team and we use three games and try to make the right conclusion of that and do the right things in the game.

“Everybody will be ready for their first title. They will be 100 per cent ready and we have to be, too. But we have to ignore what everybody says about us before the game.”
