Frank Lampard denied winning start as Chelsea boss as Bohemians snatch draw

Frank Lampard was denied victory in his first game as Chelsea boss by a late equaliser from Irish side Bohemians. Striker Michy Batshuayi gave the Blues an eighth-minute lead, firing in after Kenedy’s shot had been saved.

But in the final minute of the friendly, trialist Eric Molloy lashed in a leveller for Bohemians. Chelsea all-time record goalscorer Lampard, who succeeded Maurizio Sarri as manager last week, selected separate XIs for each half in Dublin.

Each Blues XI featured a mixture of experience and youth, with the likes of senior internationals Batshuayi, Danny Drinkwater, Cesar Azpilicueta and Pedro lining up alongside teenagers Marc Guehi, Dujon Sterling and Conor Gallagher in the first half.

After the break, there were run-outs for a number of players who spent last season on loan away from the club, including defender Kurt Zouma and midfielders Tiemoue Bakayoko, Lewis Baker and Izzy Brown.
