Revealed: The surprise reason Frank Lampard was at Chelsea vs Liverpool

Chelsea and Liverpool clashed at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League match on Tuesday evening.

It was the Blues’ first game since Graham Potter was sacked on Sunday.

Chelsea were arguably the better side on the day but were unable to take their chances and had to settle for a goalless draw.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard was spotted in the stands for yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool and it seems he could reportedly be set for a surprise return to Stamford Bridge.

According to the Sun, Chelsea are considering bringing Lampard back to the club just to steady the ship until the end of the season in a caretaker role before a new full time appointment is made.

The report notes that Chelsea have been linked with the likes of Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique, but it could be worth bringing Lampard in for the end of this campaign so that the Blues’ next manager can get a proper pre-season to prepare the squad for 2023/24.

And given the limited time left of the 2022/23 campaign, it is easy to see why this may indeed be an option as Chelsea’s campaign is already all but over and a new manager, no matter who it is, is unlikely to be able to do anything of note in the final nine gameweeks.
