Leeds United travelling to Chelsea will mean that Frank Lampard and Marcelo Bielsa are set to write the next chapter of their famous rivalry.

El Loco has often swept aside questions about Spygate, quite the opposite of Lampard who usually can’t help himself in front of the media.

Lampard finally appears to have learnt though, and actually took his time on Friday to shower praise on the Whites and their players.

Patrick Bamford is one of those who has caught the eye since promotion to the Premier League, scoring seven times.

Lampard has recalled training with the Whites forward from his playing career and has singled out some areas that his Chelsea side will need to stop.

“Lampard remembers training with Patrick Bamford well,” Chelsea shared on their Twitter account.

“He recalls he had great finishing ability and he should be proud of the way his career has gone, even if he didn’t work out for him at Chelsea with such competition in forward areas.”

Bamford has been superb this season and will be raring to go after missing out on the scoresheet against Everton last weekend.

The striker was visibly frustrated when taken off at Goodison Park, and Bielsa will be ready to unleash his main man at Stamford Bridge against his former side.

If there is one thing that’s guaranteed, it is that Leeds will create chances no matter who they play, and Bamford will be determined to find the back of the net against one of his former sides.
