Harry Wilson has warned Chelsea that Derby boss and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is keen to cause an upset when both sides meet in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
Lampard who established himself as Chelsea’s record goalscorer before he left makes an emotional return to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday but as an opposition manager.
It can be recalled that Derby County knocked Man United out of the last round of the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford on penalties and Wilson believes another script has been set for Derby to do another giant-killing.
Speaking ahead of the game. Wilson said: “It was almost like it was made for him, wasn’t it?”
“I’m sure he’ll enjoy going back to a club where he had such a successful career.
“But we’ll be going there full of confidence and will play our football looking to get a result. Winning at Old Trafford gave us a lot of confidence, and we’re going to Stamford Bridge to get a similar result.”
Speaking on Lampard’s impact at Derby, Wilson said: “He’s been great,” said Wilson, 21, who is on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
“I spoke to him on the phone before I went there, and the way he spoke and what he told me about how he wanted his team to play made me realise it was the right club for me.
“Since I’ve been there I’ve learned a lot and his coaches help me too. The way we’ve played in the last month or so has shown how we’ve progressed as a team.”
