Lampard, who will come up against title contenders Liverpool as the manager of Premier League strugglers Everton on Sunday, will be hoping to pick up some valuable points in their fight for survival.
The 43-year-old will be hoping to get a better result than the last time he visited Anfield.
Back in July 2020, goals from Naby Keita, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Georginio Wijnaldum, Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sealed an entertaining 5-3 win against top four hopefuls Chelsea.
Livepool equalled the record of 18 home wins in a Premier League campaign in one of the most dramatic games of the season – both on and off the pitch.
After the home side were awarded a soft free-kick, an angry Lampard ripped into Klopp and his assistant manager, Pep Lijnders, on the touchline and because no fans were in the stadium, you could hear every word.
You can see the footage of the incident below. It has since picked up over 10 million views on Optus Sport's YouTube channel, featuring subtitles and the lot.
So what was said?
Lampard protests: “That’s not a foul at the end. Right, well sit down then.”
A relatively calm Jurgen Klopp hits back, saying: “It’s not your job, it’s mine, to ask him [Ljinders] to sit down.”
Lampard responded: “No, no… if he’s going off at me then I’ll f***ing say something.”
Jurgen Klopp the asked the then-Chelsea manager to "calm down", a reply that didn't go down well with Lampard, who said: “It’s not a f***ing foul. I’m not asking you. I’m not asking you, shut up man!”
“HEY!”, replied Klopp before Lampard shouted: “F**k off you, as well. Only league title you’ve ever won and you’re f***ing giving it the big ‘un… f**k off!”
A year later and Lampard said he regretted his actions on the Anfield touchline that day.
"Yeah, I did regret that,” he told The High Performance Podcast. “And when that broke the next day – I clearly felt it as I was doing it – but when it broke the next day and a friend of mine sent it to me in the morning, I was a bit embarrassed by it.
“Because I was in the moment, but in the moment, I felt we turned up and it was the easiest day for Liverpool ever.
“They won the league, they went goals up early in the game. And a few things happened with the bench, I’m not going to go into detail, but my feeling was, ‘I want to protect my club’.
“And I didn’t have a problem with Liverpool celebrating. Luckily enough, I’ve been there. I’ve been with Chelsea where we won the league quite early one year, and you can sit there and everything feels great.”
