Lampard hails Chelsea man-of-the-match Deco

Frank Lampard hailed Chelsea's man-of-the-match Deco after their victory at Manchester City.

Lamps said: "I knew what a great player he was before he came here but he's adapted straight away and been brilliant."

Chelsea forward Didier Drogba, who has had a knee injury, made his first appearance of the season when he came on for the last 20 minutes.

But he admitted he was not a certain starter for Tuesday's Champions League match against Bordeaux.

"I think I will need more games to be 100 per cent," the Ivory Coast international said.
