He's done well - Wenger hails Frank Lampard after beating his arch-foe Jose Mourinho's Tottenham





- Frank Lampard succeeded Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea boss at the start of the ongoing season

- His return was marked with mixed reactions as section of fans doubted his ability

- He has, however, managed to disprove his critics, with his young side enjoying consistency in the league

- The Englishman is the first manager to complete a double on Jose Mourinho in both of their league meetings

Arsene Wenger believes Frank Lampard has shown he has the determination to compete at the top level as manager.

Lampard took over as Chelsea boss at the start of the ongoing campaign, replacing Maurizio Sarri who quit for Juventus.

Prior to his return to Stamford Bridge as manager, the Englishman was managing Championship side, Derby County, who he nearly inspired to promotion to the Premier League last season.

His appointment to the helm of affairs at the Blues was met with criticism from a section of fans, who doubted Lampard's ability to steer the London club to greater heights.

But despite a tumultuous start to his spell at the Bridge, the former England international has managed to lead the club to fourth place, with their 2-0 win over Spurs on Saturday, February 22, cementing their grip on the position.

His stint has now left Wenger impressed, who remarked on how Lampard’s ability to make ‘tough’ decisions and stay strong in the face of adversity had convinced him he is suited for the job.

"I feel like he has done well overall. When he had bad results he kept calm, kept the way of playing and I think you judge a manager when he starts with how he deals with disappointment," Wenger told BeIN Sports.

"Overall, he kept his way and it’s quite encouraging. I like his style of play, I like watching it. He makes some tough decisions, which you may not always agree with, but he has a way to conduct and he sticks to it.
