Chelsea vs Derby: “I know Chelsea like back of my hands”- lampard says as he reveals how he will handle former club

Derby County head coach, Frank Lampard has revealed the style of play his side will adopt against Chelsea as he prepares for an emotional encounter with his beloved club on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup.

Lampard noted that his men will attack the Blues in front of their home fans.

He explained that by nature, he is not used to parking buses. He, however, noted that the game will be very tough for them.

“It will be emotional,” Express quoted Lampard as saying at a pre-match press conference.

“It’ll be nice for me to meet up with a lot of friends behind the scenes at the stadium and see 40,000 friends at the game before getting down to work mode.

“Will we attack them? It depends on the game plan. I’ve been asked if I’ll park the bus, and by nature my reaction to that would be, ‘No.’”

“Obviously, I know Chelsea like the back of my hand and it won’t be easy to go and play like we did in the first-half against Boro,” Lampard added.

“But we want to give a good account of ourselves and be effective with the ball when we’ve got it.”

The kick-off time for the match is 8:45pm.
