Lampard Earns First Win This Season as Chelsea’s Manager
Two late goals against Bournemouth finally gave Frank Lampard his first win since his return as Chelsea’s interim manager. The Blues had lost all four Premier League games since Lampard’s return in April..
With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling among five players left out from the side that had lost 3-1 at Arsenal in their previous outing, Chelsea were much improved with 21-year-old Noni Madueke a particular threat on the right-hand side.
Lampard had opted to bring in Gallagher as well as Badiashile, Trevoh Chalobah, Mykhailo Mudryk and Kai Havertz, and he said shaping a side from a large squad after a poor run has been difficult.
“There are a few players finding their feet,” Lampard said.
“This is a first step, it won’t be plain sailing but there is talent there and the players need to come together to get us to where we want to be.
The win is a relief for Lampard struggling to record a first win since coming on board as Chelsea’s coach.
