Lampard And Sturridge Steal The Show

October 2, 2011

Frank Lampard stole the show in his 350th league appearance for Chelsea at the Reebok Stadium, scoring a hat-trick and putting in a performance that will have more than answered his critics in the media. The team lined up with Cech in goal, Luiz and Terry in the centre of defence with Cole and Bosingwa on the left and right respectively. In mid-field, Villas-Boas opted to start with Ramires on…


Blues Getting Back To Their Best
