Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been left impressed by Frank Lampard's management style especially during the club's current rough patch.
The Blues recorded a morale-boosting 2-1 win over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon following unpleasant results in recent weeks including Monday night's 2-0 home loss against Manchester United.
Speaking after the Blues dispatched Jose Mourinho's men, the Frenchman praised the former midfielder, noting that good managers are only known during difficult moments.
"I feel like he has done well overall, when he had bad results he kept calm, kept the way of playing and I think you judge a manager when he starts with how he deals with disappointment," he told BeIN Sports.
"Overall, he kept his way and it's quite encouraging. I like his style of play, I like watching it. He makes some tough decisions, which you may not always agree with, but he has a way to conduct and he sticks to it,"
"He shows strong character and that's what's needed when you work at a big club," he added.
Lampard's side is battling Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal for a spot in the top four, and their Saturday win could prove crucial.
Chelsea hold a six-point lead over United and four ahead of Spurs going into the last 10 matches of the league.
