Due to his non-existent managerial experience, many people thought that Frank Lampard would struggle after his instalment as Derby County manager in the summer.
And he still might, but the start to his first season at the East Midlands club couldn’t have gone much better.
His Derby side currently sit fifth in a tightly contested Championship after winning 4-1 away at West Bromwich Albion last night.
Although he’s suffered some tough moments – such as losing 4-1 at home to Leeds – that is to be expected of a rookie manager.
Even more impressively, Lampard beat his former manager, Jose Mourinho, in the EFL Cup on penalties at Old Trafford.
And his history with Chelsea – he’s the clubs leading goal-scorer – Chelsea fans have been keeping close tabs on him.
He’s been tutoring Mason Mount – who people have pencilled in to be the successor to Lampard’s former position.
And due to his success, many Chelsea fans are predicting Lampard could be a future Blues manager.
So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to their former midfielder’s thrashing of high-flying West Brom:
I look forward to the Frank Lampard revolution at Chelsea
