Chelsea 1-1 Leicester: Lampard picks up first point

Frank Lampard earned his first point as Chelsea boss as he saw his side hang on to a point against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues were hammered 4-0 at Manchester United to start their 2019-20 Premier League campaign last weekend after the club legend was appointed as manager over the summer after guiding Derby County to the EFL Championship playoff final.

However, Lampard has a lot of work to do based on their opening two games as Leicester looked the more likely winners in the final 20 minutes after Wilfried Ndidi’s equaliser midway through the second half. The Nigerian found himself unmarked from a corner to head home from close range.

Ndidi’s goal made up for his error in the first half when he conceded possession on the edge of his penalty area from which Mason Mount stripped him of the ball and produced a fine finish across Kasper Schmeichel’s goal.

Leicester have drawn both of their games to start the new season. The Foxes head to newly-promoted Sheffield United next weekend whilst Lampard goes in search of his first win at Norwich City.
