Should the Chelsea legend be selected, it would be a second encounter against his former club, this time making his first return to Stamford Bridge since leaving the club in the summer. 

Jose Mourinho has blatantly said that "Frank Lampard's love story with Chelsea is over".

He continued: "When he decided to go to a direct competitor to Chelsea then love stories are over.

"He did his job as a professional. He got a good reception and this is England and this is Chelsea. Chelsea people never forget what Chelsea people do at the club."

Mutual respect

He did, however, receive an absolutely wonderful reception from the travelling support at the Etihad Stadium both during the match as well as after. He was clearly emotional due to the impact that Chelsea have had on his entire career. 

This, for sure, was one of his toughest games mentally he has ever had to face and we are sure that the one in January will not be any easier.
