Chelsea draw with Bohemians in Lampard’s first game

Chelsea drew 1-1 with Bohemians in Frank Lampard’s first match as Blues boss.

Michy Batshuayi opened the scoring for Chelsea in the pre-season friendly in Dublin, firing home on eight minutes after Kenedy’s shot had deflected towards the Belgian striker.

Eric Molley, a trialist, equalised in the final minute following a spell of pressure by the home side.

Lampard started with a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Cesar Azpilicueta at centre-back and Danny Drinkwater alongside Ethan Ampadu in midfield.

A completely different line-up, captained by Kurt Zouma, featured in the second half.

Chelsea will be in action in Dublin again on Saturday afternoon, when they play St Patrick’s.

First-half Chelsea team: Caballero, Sterling, Azpilicueta, Guehi, Kenedy, Drinkwater, Ampadu, Pedro, Gallagher, Palmer, Batshuayi.
Second-half team: Cumming, Zappacosta, Chalobah, Zouma, Maatsen, Baker, Bakayoko, Brown, Gilmour, Piazon, Ugbo.
