Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Newcastle United, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has praised both players for their passion.

Lampard said: “Great story. Two lads whose passion in their interview after the Manchester United game was great to see.

“But I don’t want to talk about them like I’m talking above them because they are good footballers who have a real passion for their club.

“So I know that their fans will appreciate that and it will be tough. They are good players who put their foot in and care about their club. From afar, both of them huge credit.”
