Chelsea draws in Lampard's first game in charge

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will give Abraham Mount and Drinkwater chances this term- McGarry

Frank Lampard was denied his first win as Chelsea manager as the Blues began their pre-season schedule with a 1-1 draw against Irish side Bohemians on Wednesday.

Bohemians found themselves pinned back early by confident Chelsea passing and intense pressing, and Batshuayi capitalised on a fortunate bounce of the ball to lash the visitors in front inside eight minutes.

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw in Dublin after Michy Batshuayi's opener was cancelled out by trialist Eric Molloy's late goal.

Yet Nevin has warned that the Chelsea hierarchy have to sympathise with the difficulties facing Lampard in his first season and should have "quite low" expectations despite winning the Europa League and finishing third in the Premier League last term.

"There was a bit of pressure on the lads, we've been working them hard so I'm pleased with the outcome".

"It was a good run-out, we had good support and thanks for people turning out".

"The quicker we get to the level we want, the better obviously".

We could play over 60 games again this year, and from early July we're already being milked for every penny. I didn't think they'd get it last season.

"I have a way of working that can be taxing on the players and we wanted to get straight into it ..." We wanted to win the game as you always do but it is not about that.

Lampard, who won three Premier League titles and the Champions League as a Chelsea player, said he was happy with the team's performance despite failing to get the victory. "We need intensity in our game and I am pleased with the way their have worked and their attitude".

Pre-season preparations will continue in Ireland on Saturday when they take on St Patrick's Athletic.
