"I was surprised to see him move to United and maybe there is more to this deal than we realise", Lampard told Yahoo Sports. "I have always answered this question, not only once but twice, three times".

"I don't think I need to adapt to the Premier League, but to my new coach".

But then that's why they're the rank outsiders to win the Premier League, favourites on the Exchange to finish Rock Bottom, and the only club to be trading at odds-on in the Relegation market.

"When you speak about pressure with me and I am used to the pressure". He won't have had anything like it in Italy or Spain.

His 16 goals in 36 appearances garnered admiring glances from Real Madrid, who are long-time admirers, with the former Lille player confessing last month that he would "consider" an offer should the Spanish champions firm up their reported €100m (Dh429m) offer. It's a very tough league and he'll have to stand up to that.

"For sure, it is very important to have quality players".

"It's simple. I think I'm the coach of this team". He's a very select player who's a top, top striker, but when the position goes so far it's hard to put it back.

Chelsea, who suffered a penalty shoot-out defeat to Arsenal in the Community Shield, will have Champions League action added to their workload this season, with European competition set to complement a Premier League campaign which opens with a home date against Burnley on Saturday.

"I think they've bought well - it's just a case of numbers", he insisted.

No one doubted that English clubs would break their own 1.2 billion-pound ($1.56 billion) transfer-spending record this summer; all that was disputed was by how much and which players would go where.

"But I understand people's fears".

"Some players have different styles but that won't affect the way that we go about our business". He's available, can we get him?' I think Chelsea more often than not have backed their managers and brought in the players needed.

Those strong results were in large down to some excellent performances from Palace's star men - the likes of Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha, Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye, and the very underrated Jason Puncheon. If he can even keep Huddersfield up, then he could have his pick of clubs going forward.
