This weekend was an interesting one in the Championship as two Chelsea legends Frank Lampard and John Terry were up against each other.
John Terry was appointed Aston Villa assistant manager just last month, and his side played host to Lampard’s Derby County at the Villa Park – a game that Villa won 3-0. Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham was on target as he scored the second goal with Villa netting three times in 11 second-half minutes to move within four points of the play-off places. Fikayo Tomori played at the back for the Rams and Mason Mount missed the game due to an ankle injury.
kenedy set up Salomon Rondon’s second goal with a fine cross in a 2-1 win against Bournemouth at St James’ Park. Newcastle recorded back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time this season and are up to 14th.
In the Championship, Michael Hector was key in defence as he helped Sheffield Wednesday keep a clean sheet in the Sheffield derby game on Friday that ended goalless.
Away from England, Tiemoue Bakayoko’s AC Milan were beaten 2-0 by Juventus in the big game at the San Siro with Gonzalo Higuain the player dismissed.
In La Liga, Kenneth Omeruo helped Leganes keep a clean sheet in a goalless draw at Girona. In the Dutch Eredivisie, Eduardo and Jake Clarke-Salter both started for Vitesse who won 2-1 at home to Utrecht.
In the Belgian top flight, Kylian Hazard featured in the Cercle Brugge midfield in a 2-0 victory over Waasland-Beveren. Danilo Pantic was taken off after half an hour of Partizan Belgrade’s 2-0 win over Radnik in the Serbian Super Liga.
