Matt Miazga: Great experience facing Chelsea icon Lampard

Chelsea signing Matt Miazga enjoyed facing Blues legend Frank Lampard last year.

Miazga has signed for Chelsea from New York Red Bulls.

During the season he faced the Big Apple's other MLS side, New York City, featuring no less than Frank Lampard in their side, as well as David Villa and Andrea Pirlo.

"We played them in the Red Bull Arena and there were obviously some world-class players there and every time you step on the field against them you want to do well. It was a good experience playing against top players like that – meeting them and competing against them.

"Frank Lampard had some chances and we were lucky he didn't put them away but he obviously had good quality on the ball," he told chelseafc.com.
