Lampard ready for Reds test

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has rubbished suggestions that Liverpool could 'roll over' in a pivotal game in the Premier League title race on Sunday.

The Blues head to Anfield with a one-point lead at the top of the table over Manchester United with two games remaining in the domestic season.

A Liverpool victory could open the title door for bitter rivals United to win a fourth consecutive crown – something that would nudge them past the Reds' haul of 18 league crowns.

"There's no chance that 11 Liverpool players can go out and consider Man United winning the championship in that game," said Lampard.

"They go out to win the game. You wouldn't be professional otherwise but they are professional. The manager's professional, the players are.

"There's no way they'll think about anything other than winning the game regardless of whether it gets them in the Champions League next year or not as well.

"Even if they're out of it, they will give everything. There's no doubt about that.

"It is a difficult match but it's not a case of us worrying. Everyone is aware that when they go to Liverpool it will be difficult, whatever stage of the season it is.

"It is quite a simple formula for us. Win two games and we win the league, if we don't, we may have to rely on goal difference – it depends on Manchester United's results."
