Lampard aims to be positive

Chelsea midfielder hopes for home comforts

Frank Lampard feels playing the second leg at Stamford Bridge could help Chelsea to overcome Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

The Premier League rivals will be meeting in the last four of the Champions League for the third time in four seasons after Chelsea beat Fenerbahce and Liverpool saw off Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Both previous meetings have seen the second leg played at Anfield, with Liverpool going through 1-0 on aggregate in 2005 before winning on penalties last year.

However, this time around, Chelsea will be at home in the second game and midfielder Lampard believes that could make a difference in the tie.

Positive mind

"We know a lot about them and they know a lot about us," Lampard told Sky Sports News.

"They've got a great Champions League record. I think their team is suited to that.

"We have to go into it with a positive mind.

"The one big difference is we go there first and we have to go there and get a positive result to bring back here."

Not worried

Goals from Michael Ballack and Lampard secured a 2-0 win over Fenerbahce on Tuesday night to send Chelsea through 3-2 on aggregate.

Ballack echoed his team-mate's view that playing the return clash with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge could swing the tie in Chelsea's favour.

The Germany international said: "I'm not worried about this game, it's always close.

"This year the second leg is at home, so we will see."
