Frank Lampard helped The Blues earn a point in the Mestalla

33-year-old attacking midfielder Frank Lampard has been restored to the Chelsea line-up in Champions League Group E fixture Valencia vs Chelsea after starting on the bench for the past two matches. Lampard was reportedly very unhappy about being relegated to the bench for last Saturday’s 4-1 win over Swansea City as Chelsea’s manager Andre Villas-Boas looks to find the right formula to get the best out of striker Fernando Torres. It has been a rough couple of weeks for Frank Lampard and at the age of 33 it has raised eyebrows among football pundits. However, Lampard scored his 20th Champions League goal in his 78th appearance in the competition that has become a Holy Grail for him and for Chelsea. Frank Lampard answered his critics and sent a reminder of his importance to manager Andre Villas-Boas, but Chelsea were denied victory in the dying moments as Valencia snatched a 1-1 draw during Wednesday’s Champions League action.
