The result, courtesy of Tammy Abraham and Cesar Azpilicueta goals, sent the Blues through as runners-up to Valencia and so a tricky assignment awaits in the round of 16.

By that point Chelsea could have reinforcements now they are able to sign players again in January after the club's transfer ban was lifted.

Yet Lampard said: "I'm calm about this window. I know what the squad is. We feel very together in the dressing room.

"We are improving and even the little bumps during the last two weeks are part of the process and we don't see so much in January that you can do great business.

"If it is there to be done and it feels like it is right for the club that is a conversation for me and upstairs, but I am very calm with January.

"I believe in what we've got now and I don't think we will be crazy just because the transfer ban has been lifted. I think we just need to keep working."

Jadon Sancho and Wilfried Zaha have been linked with moves to Stamford Bridge in recent weeks and Lampard did hint more options going forward would be welcomed.

He added: "I will look at all areas of the team but I think it was quite clear in the summer that you lose Eden Hazard, who was a huge part of scoring or creating our goals last season and the season before that.

"I think we've found ways as a team where we can still be competitive. We've shown that in the league and now the Champions League.

"But going forward if we're looking at if we can get even better. Can we get better in forward areas to help competition to help the idea of being more clinical, then I think we'll always look at that."
