Sturridge & more: Twitter reacts as Lampard scores AGAINST Chelsea
Daniel Sturridge and Ian Wright tweet their thoughts after Man City's Frank Lampard scores in a 1-1 draw with Chelsea
Frank Lampard scored his first Manchester City goal to rescue a point for the Citizens against his former side Chelsea at The Etihad.
The 36-year-old joined the Eastlands outfit on loan last month after calling time on a decorated 13-year career at Chelsea to join MLS side New York City.
And within 10 minutes of his introduction as a second-half substitute, Lampard poked an equaliser past Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to seal a 1-1 draw.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, to Lampard’s first goal in sky blue.
