Derby County given perfect draw for manager Frank Lampard

Published

on

Derby County have been drawn against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the fourth round of the League Cup, the club where manager Frank Lampard became a legend on the pitch. 

The Rams pulled off the shock of the third round when they defeated Manchester United on penalties at Old Trafford after a 2-2 draw and will be hoping of causing a second upset against Maurizio Sarri’s side.

Lampard played 640 times for the Blues during his time with the club and became their all-time top scorer in the process, netting 209 goals as well as 150 assists.

He was a crucial part of teams who won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League and will no doubt be given a rousing reception on his return.

Derby have had a decent start to the season under Lampard and currently sit in eighth place in the Championship table.

The verdict 

It all seems a bit too convenient, doesn’t it?

But conspiracy theories aside, Lampard will be relishing the chance to return to the club where he made his name and really prove himself as a manager.

He has already proven himself to be more than capable from the sidelines but a win against his former club would be the highlight for sure.
