CHE vs DER Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Five-times League Cup Champions Chelsea are set to lock horns against their legend Frank Lampard’s Derbyshire in a Football League Cup match at Stamford Bridge Stadium, tomorrow, on Wednesday night.
The pre-match build-up is all about Frank Lampard’s return to the SW6 where he made quite a name for himself. With three Premier League titles, one Champions League medal and not to mention the FA Cups and the League Cups he won in his illustrious 13-year spell with the club, no matter what happens in this match, his legacy is and will always be intact at the Bridge.
Chelsea have made an unexpected start under their new manager Maurizio Sarri. The Blues were supposed to be in transition and were thought to be only a candidate fighting for a top-4 finish. However, they have looked anything but a challenger for a Champions League places.
The 2016-17 Premier League Champions have gone 14 games unbeaten across all competitions since losing the Community Shield to Manchester City, winning 11 of those and drawing just three. Certainly, the Blues are one of the most in-form sides in the league at this stage.
Derby have picked up some notable results under Frank Lampard’s leadership this season. In the recent Championship games, the win against the leaders Sheffield United and 4-1 away win against West Brom, reveals that The Rams are a serious contender to go up this season.
While it’s the EFL Cup where Lampard has made a name for himself in the managerial world. The 40-year-old former West Ham midfielder has already scripted a dream win over his former mentor Jose Mourinho in the last round.
When Derby drew the mighty Red Devils in the 3rd round, many saw this the end for Lampard’s team in the League Cup. However, the Rams fought back from a goal down to take a lead at the Old Trafford. But a late Marouane Fellaini header took the tie into the penalty shootout, and the rest, as they say, is ‘History.’
For sure, it will be quite odd to see Lampard sitting in the opposing dugout and trying to orchestrate Chelsea’s downfall in this game, for some fans it could be a chance to see a future Chelsea manager.
