"But we knew the Liverpool game was huge for us. We knew if we had dropped points we would have given the momentum to United."
The lead has changed hands numerous times throughout the season but Chelsea ensured that they go into the final day in pole position with victory at Anfield.
"We've definitely had a couple of moments in the season where we haven't been at our best and we've dropped points, and the momentum went back with Manchester United but in the last 10 games our performances have been fantastic," stated Lampard.
"We've got a bit of a head of steam up now and we're in a good position."
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti would admit that getting all three points at Liverpool was potentially decisive in the title race.
"It was the key game I think for the fight for the title and we played very well," said the Italian. "We deserved to win. It was a little bit difficult in the first half but in the second half we did better.
"It was an important performance. There was a lot of pressure on this game and on us but we had good control of our emotions.

"The team is fit, mentally very good and we have to have confidence for the next game. We have to stay calm, train well like we did the last week and prepare well. Nothing special."
