Jose Mourinho and Chelsea would "love" Frank Lampard to work for Chelsea again in some capacity as he prepares to play for Man City at Stamford Bridge today.
The Blues legend left Chelsea after 13 trophy laden years last summer only to surprise everyone by joining Premier League rivals Man City on loan.
Speaking to Soccer AM, Lampard admits he would also love to rejoin the club one day.
Jose Mourinho and the club from the top have said they’ll love for me to be involved, whenever I want to go back. Chelsea is like going back home and it feels such a big part of me. When you are part of Chelsea, I’ve seen it with people like ‘Chopper’ Harris and Peter Bonetti, they’re still there to this day. It’s a club that really looks after its players.
If the opportunity was there to go back, I would love to, as I had such a long career there. It’s a part of me – and that never changes.
Wojciech Szczesny could make his first Premier League start for Arsenal against Aston Villa since he was caught smoking in the showers after the New Year's Day defeat at Southampton.
The Poland international was back in goal for last weekend's FA Cup victory against Brighton, and Wenger believes he has responded well after losing his place to Colombian David Ospina.
He is 100 per cent committed in training and works harder than ever," said Wenger.
For me that is the most important when a player is questioned at some stage, how he responds shows you his strength of character, and on that front Wojciech has done extremely well until now.
At the moment, the competition is there. I just always have to make the decision who plays the next game.
