Bournemouth winger Wilson grateful to Lampard

Liverpool winger Harry Wilson says he owes a lot to Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

Lampard gave Wilson his first shot in senior football during a loan spell at Derby County last season.

The Wales international has continued that form with Bournemouth this season, and he hasn't forgotten about Lampard's role in his young career.

"I owe Frank Lampard a lot," Wilson said ahead of the Cherries' trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

"He was fantastic for me last season, probably the most important one in my career so far, the one where I played regular football.

"To play under a legend like him, he taught me a lot. I'm in regular contact with him and it's great to see him doing so well at Chelsea now."
