Frank Lampard set for Premier League return - report

Reports have emerged on Wednesday that Frank Lampard is being lined up to replace Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace this summer.

Hodgson's contract with the Eagles expires this summer, and The Telegraph say that Lampard's performance at Chelsea has impressed Palace chairman Steve Parish.

Other names in the frame for the job have been Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe, but with the latter set to take the Celtic job and the former likely to stay at Burnley, Lampard has emerged as the frontrunner.

Gary Neville was critical of the way that Lampard conducted himself as a player at Chelsea, saying that he was one of the players looking to get then-manager Andre Villas-Boas sacked.

Lampard left Chelsea at the end of January after a faltering campaign, in which expensive signing Kai Havertz and Timo Werner - among others - failed to settle.

Since his appointment at the Blues, Thomas Tuchel has guided them to a Champions League final and they look likely to finish in the top four.

"You can't be surprised at Chelsea," Neville told Sky Sports.

"I would go back to that game in Napoli eight or nine years ago, where Villas-Boas had picked a team in the afternoon for the Champions League game.

"I think he left out Frank Lampard, Michael Essien and another big player at that time. I remember the Chelsea players at that time ringing up members of the media trying to get him out - Frank was part of that group.

"It has really been a brutal football club for managers for many, many years and Frank suffered that brutality [in January]. He should be the least surprised - he has been at the club when Villas-Boas was sacked, Scolari, and all the rest of them that have come and gone."
