Christine couldn’t keep the smile off her face, flashing a beaming grin following their outing.

She accessorised with simple, minimalist details like a black shoulder bag and  silver jewellery.

Frank embraced a casual look in a simple black top and chinos for the occasion, dressing it down in a pair of Converse.

Chelsea lost 1-0 to Valencia at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, marking Frank’s first Champions League loss as a manager. 

Rodrigo’s strike was the 14th goal Chelsea has conceded in the seven games in all competitions since Lampard took charge of the club. 

Chelsea fans were given a reason to cheer minutes after conceding, when a penalty was awarded after a VAR review saw referee Cüneyt Çakir go over to the pitchside screen to verify that Fikayo Tomori’s header hit the hand of Daniel Wass.

But it was not usual penalty taker Jorginho or Willian who took the spot kick. After a conversation with Willian, Ross Barkley pointed to his chest before going up to the spot.

And those earlier celebrations were short-lived as Barkley’s kick clipped the crossbar and flew over.

‘I wanted to take it’, Willian said. ‘But he was confident to take it. It is football and he missed the penalty.’

Frank sought to downplay any issues within the team over the penalty taker, saying Barkley assumed the role when he came off the bench.

‘I don’t know what the conversation was,’ Lampard said, ‘but Jorginho and Willian were penalty takers until Ross came on the pitch.’
