It’s not often that Premier League footballers get overshadowed, but that’s what happened at Stamford Bridge last week.
Chelsea stars Frank Lampard and Fernando Torres would be a big draw for a photographer on their own, but add in global pop star Justin Bieber and the snappers will go crazy, oh, and Radio 1 DJ Reggie Yates.
On the pitch it’s been quite a struggle for this Chelsea pair. Torres can’t find the back of the net for love nor money, while Lampard has had to make do with a place on the bench.
Bieber on the other hand is taking the world by storm and any appearance he makes is followed by hoards of screaming teenage girls, something Fernando and Frank don’t quite get.
Here is a true meeting of stars: Torres and Bieber, with a handshake commemorating the event.
What do you think is being said between the pair? Maybe Justin’s giving Fernando some friendly football advice!

This week you can win a copy of the Theatre of Silence: The Lost Soul of Football!
They used to call it the people’s game but not anymore; silent crowds, soulless all-seater stadiums, rip-off ticket pricing, corporate priorities, players diving, 24/7 fixtures, aggressive stewards, overbearing advertising, overpaid players, agents and of course – Sepp Blatter.
All of these and more are the target of a relentless attack from Matthew Bazell, who asks why no-one’s singing anymore.
In a heartfelt personal account, Bazell examines the way in which football, both on and off the field has lost its soul to greed, but argues that, ultimately it s the supporters who have the power to reclaim the game.
This new edition includes updates, pictures, new material and a special guest chapter by John Lydon.
