However, despite encouraging signs going forward, the Blues suffered a 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford, immediately putting the pressure on Lampard and his players ahead of the UEFA Super Cup final.
The West Londoners are currently being hindered by a number of injury issues, although Lampard will hope to have at least one extra player at his disposal in Istanbul on Wednesday night.
Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Chelsea could line up against the Champions League winners in Turkey.
Willian could return to the fold having missed the United setback with a hamstring strain, although the Brazilian may have to make do with a place on the bench.
N'Golo Kante came through the closing stages unscathed as he bids to regain his spot in the team after a similar injury, but the Frenchman may be limited to more minutes in the second half.
That would allow Barkley, who was withdrawn early in the second half against United, to return to the central role behind the main striker, a position he flourished in during pre-season.
The backline could remain the same, however, as Lampard looks for immediate improvements after individual mistakes cost his team in the North-West.
