Derby:Frank lampard believe Chelsea will defeat their local rival Tottenham

Frank Lampard’s side head into this game with four losses in their last five league games, including disappointing home defeats to West Ham and Bournemouth.

Spurs have found some form under new manager Jose Mourinho, and Chelsea need much-improved performance if they are to beat their local rivals

Tottenham have won four of their five games under Mourinho and have climbed up to fifth in the league table since the former Chelsea boss took charge.

Mourinho was Lampard’s manager at Stamford Bridge for a total of five seasons, where they won two Premier League titles together.

But despite their close working relationship in the past, Caballero does not believe it will have an impact on the game.

They’ve improved a lot but, on the other hand, Chelsea know Mourinho very well. Also Frank knows Mourinho very well.

“The advantage will be on the pitch and not on the bench.

“They had a game when Frank was at Derby last season and Jose was at United. Nothing happens on the benches. The only thing that’s important is the players on the pitch.”
