Ndidi Atones for Costly Error, Denies Lampard First Victory

WILFRED NDIDI atoned for a costly mistake to deny Frank Lampard his first win as Chelsea manager after Leicester forced the Blues to a deserved 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Ndidi’s mistake led to Mason Mount’s opener as Chelsea took an early lead in the first half.

The Nigerian midfielder however, headed Leicester’s well-deserved second half equalizer.

Lampard managed to avoid being the first Chelsea boss to lose his first two Premier League games in charge since Gianluca Vialli 21 years ago.

The Blues were thrashed 4-0 at Manchester United in the season opener and beaten on penalties by Liverpool in the European Super Cup on four days later.

Elsewhere on Sunday, John Lundstram scored the only goal as Sheffield United made a winning return to the Premier League at Bramall Lane with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
