Chelsea are preparing to face Fulham at Craven Cottage in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

Boss Frank Lampard has hailed his ex-Chelsea team-mate Scott Parker’s managerial acumen, with the Cottagers showing a resurgence following a poor start to the season.

“He’s diligent, has a good football brain and is very determined,” said Lampard.

“He wants to do well in everything he does, and prepares right.

“Everything as a player made me think that Scott could go on to coaching and management.

“The only doubt is do they want to.

“He showed his ideas very quickly when he got into his coaching badges and started his pathway to youth teams etcetera.

“He’s done fantastically well, he is doing fantastically well and will continue to do so.”
