Blues legend Lampard is on the verge of taking Derby back to the Premier League after just one season in management. Lampard is hot favourite to replace Maurizio Sarri whose days look numbered regardless of whether they win the Europa League next week. Derby face a £180m Wembley shootout with Aston Villa on Monday for a place back at football’s top table.
