Frank Lampard even hung around at the end to applaud his old team-mate, but it was the performances of goalscorers Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount that will have really excited the Chelsea head coach. He's respectful of Aston Villa so it wasn't a massive celebration time. "Luckily we have another game midweek and we have a chance to redeem ourselves".
"I feel that we can be as good as teams like Chelsea".
According to The Athletic, Chilwell is Chelsea's "number one target", although they are also considering alternatives, with Lampard having been unconvinced by current options Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso.More news: Amazon's Echo Input portable smart speaker launched first in India at ₹4,999
Abraham missed Saturday's 1-0 loss to West Ham with a hip problem but was back in the starting line-up against his former loan club Aston Villa and headed home Chelsea's opener before teeing up Mount for the victor. "He won the ball back in good areas", Lampard said.
"I thought we were great today", Lampard said. When we played with a lot of belief then we went toe-to-toe and put them under pressure. "I'm happy but I want more".
