Chelsea finished fourth last season, in what was Lampard’s debut campaign, and finished as runners-up in the FA Cup.
But after a huge summer splurge, bringing in the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Edouard Mendy and Hakim Ziyech, there is added on pressure for Lampard to deliver.
So far, it’s not gone to plan. Chelsea have only won two of their six Premier League matches and lie in 10th place.
They have already been eliminated from the Carabao Cup, losing to Tottenham Hotspur on penalties in the last-16, leaving the Champions League, Premier League and FA Cup as their only opportunities to land a trophy.
But Ferdinand thinks silverware is exactly what Chelsea should be aiming for if they want their season to be considered a success.
‘Champions League football, finishing in the Champions League positions and winning a cup,’ Ferdinand told BT Sport.
‘I think that’ll be the demands from Frank himself.
‘And I think he’s got a squad together that are going to be capable of challenging for some silverware once they get in that groove and in that rhythm.’
