Lampard, 41, was confirmed as the club's new manager earlier this month after Maurizio Sarri departed Stamford Bridge to take over at Juventus after just a year in charge.

Chelsea's head coach appeared in good spirits following the match though, insisting that he was happy with his side's performance and stressed that the game was all about fitness.

And with pre-season training now on, the 25-year-old Kovacic has confessed he is seeking help from his new boss - who netted a club record 209 goals for Chelsea - to help him add goalscoring to his game.

There's no price mentioned, but considering Chelsea wanted €40m overall from Milan (€5m for the loan and €35m to buy him), you'd expect the Blues to want something similar after a good season.

The Blues are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title next season after they finished third and won the Europa League in Sarri's one and only season in charge of the club.

"I'm sure that his desire, passion for being manager and this chance to be manager of Chelsea, the club he loves and the fans love him", Azpilicueta said, as per The Telegraph. 'All of the club, we are very excited, and the only way we can carry it is by starting and winning together, getting the feeling back of being all together as a club.

Frank Lampard's Chelsea reign got underway in Dalymount Park on Wednesday night.

Unfortunately Pedro never had the chance to play with Lampard on the pitch.

Michy Batshuayi scored the first goal of the new era when he cooly slotted home inside the penalty box, before the Blues conceded an 89th-minute equaliser.

"He was here for a very long and very successful period, and always set an example: how he wanted to break every record or improve himself in every session".

Azpilicueta who was Lampard's teammate between 2012 and 2014 is hoping to give his best for the boss.

"But, over his first week in training, I've seen the way he wants to play, the way he wants us to feel the shirt, the way he wants us to train every day, it is something special".

In the first match, experienced Argentine goalkeeper Willy Caballero started the game, but we could see the return of Chelsea's No. 1 Kepa Arrizabalaga against St. Patrick's.
