Frank Lampard says that Chelsea need to perform at a top level for the remaining five games in their Champions League group

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has promised they will not take Steaua Bucharest lightly when they face them in the Champions League.

Mourinho, too, appeared keen to take care of matters swiftly on the eve of the contest, as he shortened his pre-match media conference. The Portuguese took exception to a question about absent forward Kevin de Bruyne. With Juan Mata informed he will start in Bucharest after beginning the season as a peripheral figure, De Bruyne was told he was not required and was left at home alongside his fellow Belgian Eden Hazard, who has an ankle injury. "This is fantastic because nobody asks me about Mata," Mourinho said. "You are for three weeks speaking about Mata, and now you are speaking about Kevin de Bruyne. "So you are not interested in the players that are playing? You are interested in the players that are not playing. "He was not selected. It was my decision. Only 11 can play and 18 can be selected."
