Polish striker Lewandowski, with 53 goals in 44 matches in all competitions this season, turned provider to set up Ivan Perisic in the 24th minute as the hosts showed no lack of fitness despite a five-week gap since their last competitive game.

Robert Lewandowski scored two goals and assisted two more as Bayern Munich cruised into the Champions League quarterfinals with a 4-1 win over Chelsea on Saturday, completing an overwhelming 7-1 victory on aggregate. It's not a slight work in progress.

Good luck and let us know how you get on. "Now is the time to think where we can improve".

Chelsea have been close to a deal for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz for several weeks now, but Lampard insisted he can not have any transfer expectations yet.

"I can see where I want us to go and I know we'll be back", added Lampard. It's a work in progress. In the last 20 years we had players, teams with prime [Eden] Hazard and [Diego] Costa, prime [Petr] Cech, [John] Terry and [Didier] Drogba.

A three-time Premier League victor and Champions League victor with Chelsea, Lampard insists times have changed since they were last competing at the top of the Premier League and in Europe.

'People would not normally commend Chelsea coming fourth, it's not normally been the levels.

'But now it's important not to rest or to settle, but to think where can we improve, where can we improve the players, and as a club where can we improve?'

Treble-chasing Bayern, who have already won the Bundesliga and German Cup this season, face Barcelona in Lisbon on Friday in the quarter-finals.

'We will prepare for Barcelona like any other opponent, ' said Flick.
