Why Chelsea's generosity to Frank Lampard may come back to haunt them

Why Chelsea's generosity to Frank Lampard may come back to haunt them”

The match sees Chelsea's all-time top goalscorer Lampard return to Stamford Bridge for the first time as a manager, aided by former Blues midfielder Jody Morris.

Two goals from Son Heung-min and a strike from Fernando Llorente gave Tottenham a 3-1 win against West Ham while Championship side Middlesbrough upset Premier league outfit Crystal Palace 1-0.

Keogh had a late chance to make amends for his earlier howler but Willy Caballero saved at close range and David Nugent hit the post in the 89th minute, leaving Lampard holding his head in his hands in frustration.

After twice equalising, the second time through Waghorn, Frank Lampard's side forced a number of good chances, notably through Jack Marriott and David Nugent, but were unfortunately denied.

Despite the defeat that knocked them out of the competition, Lampard and his Derby County side can keep their head up high and brimming with pride as they put in a performance that was the flawless testament to their ambition under the new manager.

DF Davide Zappacosta, 6 - Provided two assists with risky crosses, though it's hard to know how much credit to give him when they both found Derby players.

"It is important that we have a lot of players who can score goals and decide games and I hope they can continue to taker their opportunities". "This is probably the complaint, but we will go through this and discuss this [with them]".

Lampard added: "I'm proud of them".

"It wasn't easy for Mason Mount to come here against his parent club", continued Redknapp. It shows testament to the boys on where we are as a team and as a group of lads.

"We were in control until about 10-15 minutes to go". "I did leave here quietly (in 2014), slightly out of the back door, so it's good to walk through the front door and get that".

Bayern need just a bit of luck, says embattled coach Kovac
The reigning Bundesliga champions have seen standards slip as a collective, though, and are now four games without a win in all competitions.

Fabregas scored four minutes before half-time.

"There wasn't a tear in the eye, but it was emotional", Lampard said.

The size of the challenge to beat Chelsea was huge for Derby, with no win here since 1983 and no clean sheet since Peter Shilton's blank in 1987.

He said: "Gary played for the first time in a while".

Frank Lampard is expected to field a strong line-up as he marks his return to the club where he made his name during a 13-year-long stint that saw him win 11 trophies, including the Champions League. I turned round thinking we'd got the foul, then looked back and they were in our box.

Numerous migrants may chose to stay in countries along the route, though the Mexican government is already preparing a response. It's important to remember that for Mexico, migration isn't just about people coming into the country, Salazar says.

DF Gary Cahill, 5 - His relative lack of comfort in possession and mobility are the main reasons why he has spent so much time on the bench this season, and Derby targeted the limitations in his game with their fast attack.
