EPL: Frank Lampard left confused over selection of attacking role


Now that Chelsea seem to have returned to form with a 4-0 win in their Champions League game, attention will be given to the team as they resume the Premier League action against Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

The reason is that the West London outfit have not been impressive in the Premier League and will look to make amends by delivering a win despite playing away from home against a wounded Burnley team that is yet to win any game this season.

The Blues team have just won two games from their last six Premier League fixtures and that must improve if they must achieve their aim of winning a title and finishing in any of the top four positions this season.

However, the Blues boss Frank Lampard has confessed to being confused about his attacking selections as he battles to fit all his attacking players into the game against Burnley.

Expressing delight that his attacking players are now becoming fit and getting to their best, after the Champions League, Frank Lampard boasts of having options in the attack because of the heavy schedule of games but fitting them in is the problem.

“We’re also searching for relationships because some of the newer players are learning about each other and learning how we want to play. So I’ve got no problem with the options at the minute, and the players have to understand that when you play every three days consistent up to Christmas and beyond, there will be some rotations at times and we’ll need everybody” he added

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard can decide to play all four – Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner in the game to be able to score goals as it happened in the Champions League.

With about £200 million already spent on recruitment, Frank Lampard will be left with no choice than to win a trophy or secure Champions League qualification.
