  • Chelsea vs Bohemians LIVE stream How to watch Frank Lampard’s first game on TV and online

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has reportedly chose to field Tammy Abraham as the leading striker ahead of Olivier Giroud next season, football expert Ian McGarry has revealed.

Chelsea's goal was scored in the eighth minute by Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi, a player the club bought for $62 million.

They failed to capitalise on that early advantage, however, and the Gypsies hit back through Eric Molloy to earn a draw from the friendly.

But former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin, who is now a prominent pundit, thinks there is plenty of reasons to be positive for Lampard's long-term future because of the money that will be available to him in the summer of 2020, when the club's FIFA-imposed transfer embargo is lifted.

"Fitness was our issue, we've been working hard on it, even this morning", he told a press conference after the game. But I refuse to get caught up in, 'Because a famous footballer is loved by a club, it's going to work'.

"It was a tough game for us", admitted Lampard. I am pleased with the outcome.

Mais avant cela, Netflix a dévoilé une nouvelle bande-annonce, qui risque de ne pas plaire à tout le monde. La série, désormais en images 3D, est globalement plus moderne et s'annonce bien différente.

Given how much the average Chelsea supporter pays to go to the games or watch them on premium TV all year, the fact that what is effectively a preseason fitness session is being charged for is a bit of a farce.

"We wanted to win because you always do but it's not about that at this point", Lampard added.

"It is about individuals getting fit and pushing themselves to the limit and I thought some of the performances - particularly from the younger lads - was really good".

"We want to play with high intensity and we want to be dominant".

One man who did not see action in the Irish capital was Christian Pulisic, away following his participation with the United States in the Gold Cup, which ended on Sunday with final defeat to Mexico.

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