Kante Outran Every Player In The UEFA Super Cup Despite Being Injured

"I'm trying not to get caught up in the emotion of it all", said Lampard in his pre-match press conference.

Despite a promising start away to Manchester United, the five-time Premier League champions became the architects of their own downfall in a humbling 4-0 loss to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

Both performances featured moments of promise for Chelsea, but Lampard knows he will be judged on results, making it essential to avoid a third consecutive defeat when Leicester visit west London.

"I'm so angry for Tammy and angry for us as a club, because that's not what we're about".

"I'm really impressed with how Chelsea played in the games with tough teams in United and Liverpool", he told reporters.

It comes with Lampard having taken over at Chelsea in the summer despite having just one season of managerial experience. And this is a player that hasn't trained much, had a swollen ankle two days ago when we played on Sunday evening and he's wanted to play today and managed to cover 120 minutes and I think you saw what he brings to the team today.

"They've sold their best player by a million miles and can't replace him because of the ban".

Lampard is still getting settled into the job and he acknowledges Leicester, who opened the season with a goalless draw against Wolves, will pose a stern test to his hopes of a maiden win. The Frenchman has finally revealed where he feels comfortable playing in the team.

'It's a very competitive squad, which is what we want, but he understands where he's at. "It's important we tackle it head on with a real focus".

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard insists he's ready to throw striker Tammy Abraham back in at the deep end against Leicester City this weekend, despite the England Under-21 worldwide suffering racist abuse online.

Lampard also has German defender Antonio Rudiger and Brazilian winger Willian back in contention after the pair returned to training.

"To lose the game was disappointing but if it means Chelsea's season can be something like how we played today, we'll be OK".
