Frank Lampard kicked off his reign as Chelsea boss with a 1-1 draw against Bohemians in Dublin on Wednesday night.
Michy Batshuayi had given Chelsea the lead with just eight minutes on the clock, firing into the net after Kenedy’s shot had fallen kindly for him in the 18-yard box to tap home.
Bohemians trialist Eric Molloy created a memorable moment for himself by lashing in a leveller just before the 90th minute to end the game 1-1.
Chelsea’s next game is against St Patrick’s on Saturday, and the players are already getting set for this game.
The following morning after the game, Lampard’s team resumed training with intensity as the Blues look all geared up to get back to top fitness.
Lampard named a young and largely inexperienced line-up for his first game, but he revealed that the likes of David Luiz, Olivier Giroud, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic could feature in that game after returning as part of the second group.
“Other than the injured boys and Christian Pulisic, we’ve been pretty much together and integrated for the past couple of days and we’ll integrate more in the coming days,” the Chelsea boss said.
“You’ll see some of them at the weekend and then we’ll start getting there in terms of putting a squad together.”
