It was a long wait for Frank Lampard to get his first win as Chelsea manager, as the Blues defeated Norwich City 3-2 last Saturday.

Lampard lost his first game as Chelsea manager 4-0 to a rampaging Manchester United side, a draw with Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup final followed with Chelsea eventually losing on penalties.

After the game against Liverpool, Chelsea managed to get a 1-1 draw with Leicester City in Lampard’s first home game as Chelsea boss. The pressure was beginning to mount after three competitive games without a win, but the Blues ended up beating Norwich 3-2 last weekend away at the Carrow Road.

Lampard admitted in his press conference that the whole squad and staff felt an uplift after the win at Norwich.

He added: “I have watched the game back and there is lots and lots for us to improve on. The players know that. That’s a good sign. We got a result, we played pretty well, but I believe there is a lot more to come.

“We can’t rest on that – it’s important we back it up.”

Up next for Chelsea is a home game against Sheffield United, and the Blues must be targeting another win.

Lampard said this about the Blades: “They have started well. I was hugely impressed with them last season, their style of play and formation.

“The job Chris [Wilder] has done there can’t be underestimated, and I don’t think it is. The recognition he has got is very well deserved – to take that club from where he has, to play with a style and identity he has, when he is a man who feels deeply about the club. I felt that when we went to Sheffield United last year on the line next to him.

“I look forward to going up against him, against a good team who have stuck to their principles and who will give teams in this league a lot of problems.”
