According to the Match of the Day host, he has been impressed with the Blues’ ambition this summer but has warned that signing good players does not automatically make a team better.
Instead, Lineker says it is a case of Lampard working out what his best side is following an influx of new players.
Whilst the former England striker expects Lampard to be able to do that, he still feels that the gap from last season between Chelsea and the top two is too big to be breached in one season.
“While I’m going for the same top two, I expect Chelsea and Manchester United to provide more of a challenge,” he wrote in his column for The Sun.
“The Blues have backed Frank Lampard in the transfer market with eye-catching signings like Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Thiago Silva.
“Of course, bringing in new faces doesn’t automatically make you better and Frank will have to work out what his best side is.
“And I’m also not sure if they have the right goalkeeper at Stamford Bridge with Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero to choose from.
“But they will push harder this time and at Old Trafford, I can see United continuing to make progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“He has added another good young player in 23-year-old Donny van de Beek and are looking to sign Jadon Sancho. So I think there are exciting times ahead again for them and I expect United to finish in the top four again.”
