The first half at Chelsea was dull, so obviously everyone's attention turned to who was in the stands

West Brom’s visit to Chelsea on Sunday wasn’t exactly a classic, as the Blues struggled to break down Tony Pulis’s well-drilled Baggies.

Fortunately for the fans though entertainment wasn’t far away as the television cameras found some famous faces in the crowd. Chelsea hero Frank Lampard and his wife Christine Bleakley being top of that list.

It’s fair to say the fans were appreciative of the former Premier League midfielder’s appearance…

Perhaps not just yet K…

Chelsea’s all time scorer wasn’t alone in the stands either. Fellow former Blue Joe Cole was also present.

Why not?

In need of a goal some of the fans thought the team might be doing better with the old favourites on the pitch.

They may have been even keener to get this next guy on though; Italian superstar Andrea Pirlo.

The Chelsea fans will have been happy in the end though, as that man Diego Costa carried them over the line with the winning goal – again.

Legend in the making? Or a legend already?
