Lampard reveals why Osimhen cause Chelsea problem in UCL win

Champions League By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 03/10/2019

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard revealed why Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen caused Chelsea problem during 2-1 win over Lille in Tuesday’s Champions League clash at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

The 20-year-old Nigeria international scored a fantastic goal against Premier League giants in the 33rd minutes after Tammy Abraham had given the visitors the lead 22nd into the encounter before Brazilian midfielder Willian scored the winner for the Blues in the 78th minute to give the Stamford Bridge landlords the win. 

However, Osimhen had done enough to earn Lampard’s admiration was quoted after the game: "Osimhen was very impressive, it was a very difficult match for our defenders. He is fast and strong. I wish him a great career,”

“I know where he (Osimhen) comes from, I know his story he made a big game and managed to ask us a lot of problems in defense. He will make a big career,”

“He was hugely impressive. Tonight was going to be a tough match for our defenders. His performance individually was really good.” 

The win in France has given Chelsea their first three points in the group while Lille remains pointless after suffering an earlier defeat at Ajax on matchday 1.
