Chelsea have registered 15 points from their opening eight games and currently sit fifth in the Premier League.
Lampard has received strong backing from Chelsea’s hierarchy this year with the signings of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Edouard Mendy.
And Kante, who won the Premier League title in his first season at Chelsea in 2017, has backed the new additions to help another push for top spot.
The World Cup winner says he is also keen to secure a place in next season’s Champions League as quickly as possible.
‘The team has changed in recent years, the coach has been here for a year working together,’ Kante told TF1.
‘I think we have signed a fair amount of new players and what we are trying to do is to maintain Chelsea’s standards, win titles and be at the top in England.
‘We are well placed at the moment, I hope we will continue in this vein.
‘And I hope that we will qualify for the Champions League as quickly as possible again.’
