Andre Villas-Boas' recall of Frank Lampard was totally vindicated but the Chelsea manager's decision to substitute him backfired spectacularly as Valencia snatched a 1-1 draw in Wednesday night's Champions League clash at the Mestalla.

Lampard looked to have scored a trademark winner that would have put the visitors in complete command of Group E but Villas-Boas brought him off for Salomon Kalou with seven minutes remaining and the new man immediately conceded a penalty.

Roberto Soldado scored, with Chelsea's frustrations boiling over at the final whistle after what was a missed opportunity.
