No old-club favours from Lampard

Published Add your comment

Frank Lampard says he won’t be doing any favours for old club Swansea when he meets the side on Saturday for the first time since the Swans were promoted to the Barclays Premier League.

Lampard moved to Chelsea from West Ham United in 2001, but the midfielder spent time on loan at the old Vetch Field in 1995-96.

And while the England international has a soft spot for the Welsh side, he won’t be cutting them any slack as Chelsea aim to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday.


“It will be a special game for me against Swansea. I will always have a small place in my heart for Swansea,” Lampard said.

“I have always looked out for their results since then because you have that sense of attachment.

“And with Brendan [Rodgers] going there, the attachment has been even more so.

“Swansea are my second team in the Premier League, but they won’t be when they come to Stamford Bridge.”

Chelsea are coming off a morale-boosting penalty shoot-out win over Fulham in the Carling Cup, and with the side currently sitting third in the Barclays Premier League table, the Blues will be hoping to make their intentions clear to challenge title holders Manchester United in both England and Europe.

With Swansea at Stamford Bridge, and Valencia and Bolton away to face over the next eight days, Andre Villas-Boas will no doubt be rotating his squad and giving youngsters more chances to keep everyone fighting fit.
