Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has told Football London that Aston Villa assistant John Terry did not say much on his return, but did congratulate him on the pitch.

Chelsea ran out 2-1 winners over Villa at Stamford Bridge, with Lampard getting one over on his former teammate.

Terry, as expected, was classy in defeat though and Lampard said he came over and said well done at full-time.


“He didn’t say much, just well done on the pitch,” Lampard revealed. “It is tough coming back. Respect both ways is huge.”

Chelsea took the lead in the first-half when Tammy Abraham hit the back of the net, but they were pegged back as Trezeguet bundled in a goal for Villa.

Chelsea could have panicked at that stage, given their recent difficult run, but instead they picked themselves up and were the stronger team in the second-half.

Mason Mount ended up crashing in the winner, as Chelsea picked up a deserved three points.

The victory strengthens Lampard’s side grip on their top four spot, while Villa sit in 15th place in the Premier League table.
