In total, 35 permanent or caretaker managers have preceded the new Chelsea head coach in this achievement.
Indeed, Lampard's first match in charge at Chelsea will pit him against one of the most recent managers to do so, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Lampard is also not the first Chelsea manager to have featured as a player for the club. In fact, the Blues have given the most managerial opportunities to former players.
And encouragingly for Lampard, all but one won silverware in their first season at Stamford Bridge.
However, none of the 35 have claimed the Premier League title, offering Lampard the chance to emulate an honour he claimed three times as a Chelsea player.
|Manager||Club||Matches||PL win % as manager|
|Ole Gunnar Solskjaer||MUN||21||57.1|
|Roberto Di Matteo||CHE||23||52.2|
Man Utd's Ryan Giggs made the most appearances as a player for a club he managed, with 632.
