Christine Lampard lifts lid on Frank's mood in house after Chelsea sealed top four spot

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard's wife Christine revealed that the pair had let their hair down after a 'very intense' season finished successfully with Champions League qualification

Frank Lampard's wife Christine hinted that some rather epic celebrations had gone down in their household after Chelsea sealed a Champions League place with their 2-0 win over Wolves.

The Blues had their destiny in their own hands on the final day of the Premier League season, needing a win to be sure of ousting either Manchester United or Leicester from the top four.

Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud both scored in first-half stoppage time to give Lampard's side a lead they never looked likely to relinquish.

Lampard was jubilant to achieve a top-four finish in his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

And his wife Christine, who is a presenter on ITV programme Loose Women, revealed that the celebrations may have got a little bit out of hand.

When asked if she was blurry eyed this morning, she replied: "I tried to be very sensible but yes there was happiness in our household I'm not going to lie.

"It's been very intense!"

Chelsea's season could become even better if they go on to beat London rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final on Saturday at Wembley.

But even based purely on their league finish of fourth, one place behind Manchester United, Roy Keane believes Lampard has done a better job than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"Frank’s probably even done a better job, I have to say," admitted the former Republic of Ireland international.

"I expect them to be there or thereabouts, but the way they’ve played, the way Frank comes across, he comes across really well.

"There’s no nonsense about him, he’s made big decisions, he’s brought a lot of young players in, good players, good quality, but they’ve needed an opportunity, they took it.

"They finished in the top four and obviously if they can win an FA Cup, great achievement.

"But as Frank is reminding everybody, he’s not getting too carried away getting in the top four, but it’s huge step forward for Chelsea again."
