What they’re saying before Chelsea-Southampton

Chelsea’s Lampard on life at Stamford Bridge: We want to do well and we know there’s a lot of work to be done to achieve our goals, but unless you give it absolutely everything then that’s not going to happen. I’ve completely engulfed myself in this job and I want to bring success to this club. Coming back to Chelsea and receiving that reception that I did from the fans, you want to bring the supporters that success because they deserve it. So that’s what we are all working towards now.”
Theo Walcott on returning to Southampton: Everything has happened at 100 miles an hour, it really has. I’ve not been able to breathe really. I’ve not seen Mel and the kids for 10 days now, it’s just the way it is at this moment in time. … It’s not hit me properly yet. I feel like when I put on my shirt and play for the first time, it will probably hit me then. I can’t wait to get going really.”
