Giroud bags brace in Lampard's first win as Chelsea boss

Gilmour impressed in the 45 minute cameo against Bohemians

Lampard played a 4-2-3-1 system in the first game, and if he continues to play that system, Mason Mount, who was with him at Derby County last season, could play behind the striker. But Lampard will face an uphill task with Chelsea as they face a transfer ban which will keep them from signing any players at the club for a whole year.

'It's a big move for him to a huge club and he's a top young player who is only going to go one way in terms of his career. We turned it around and got the Europa League at the end. 'It can be massive because we know fans can make the difference, ' said Azpilicueta after hearing fans get behind the returning hero during pre-season in Ireland.

Yet, in the views of Caballero, it is Lampard's outstanding achievements on the pitch that have set him up for the elite position he takes up now.

"The academy has been first class and we want some of them to show they can get a place in the team". "We could never imagine a Chelsea side winning a trophy without those quality players, and always knew replicating the success of the great players would be hard".

César Azpilicueta believes Chelsea approach the Premier League season with a renewed sense of unity as a result of Frank Lampard's appointment as the squad embrace the new head coach's insistence they take responsibility and mount a challenge despite setbacks over recent months.

Nintendo CEO Doug Bowser recently told CNET that no further updates to the original Switch hardware are coming this year. As long as games support handheld mode, they will work on the Switch Lite - almost 100% of games work in handheld mode.

All three are in safe hands, Hilario being a double FA Cup victor and Portuguese global, pushing them to high standards which has only been a positive for Caballero.

Just shy of 40-years-old, many of similar age would be winding down their footballing life, however, goalkeepers seem to have a longer shelf life. 'We've been doing that quite well - and sometimes we could have done better. In reality, things went even better than expected.

Chelsea kick off their league campaign against Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 11.

"It's a pity because I think it would have been good for the club if Maurizio stayed and it would have been good for Maurizio as well".

"I'm looking forward to working hard - I'm enjoying it but already it's been very tough".
