'I went crazy'

Frank Lampard will not celebrate if Derby score against Chelsea tonight, but Seaman did no such thing against Arsenal…

Frank Lampard has said he will not celebrate if his Derby County side score against Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night – but David Seaman showed no such restraint against Arsenal…

The former goalkeeper has told talkSPORT of the time he stunned ex-team-mate Thierry Henry by celebrating madly when Manchester City scored a goal against the Gunners shortly after he switched between the clubs.

Lampard will return to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday for the first time since turning from player to manager, and after knocking out Manchester United in the previous round many are tipping the Rams to cause another upset.

But the Blues legend has said he will take no joy from winning or even scoring against his former club, where he spent 13 glittering years and entered the record books as the club’s top scorer in history.

Seaman, though, admitted on talkSPORT that – although he didn’t go full-on Adebayor – he was the opposite when he came up against Arsenal for the first time in a City shirt.

Asked if it’s OK to celebrate against a former club, Seaman said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “It depends on how you’ve left.

“I remember when I want to Man City, we played Arsenal quite early on in the season and we scored first and I went absolutely crazy.

“I was running around, giving it loads, and I just noticed Thierry Henry looking at me and he was like, ‘David, what are you doing?!’

“I was like, ‘sorry, sorry!’ I got carried away!

“But that was because I felt that I could still play and the offer I received from Arsenal wasn’t brilliant, so I felt I had something to prove.”
