Cole says Lampard now has a great problem


English Premier League outfit Chelsea have been having the best of time as results have turned out in their favour in both the Premier League and the Champions League which leaves manager Frank Lampard in an untroubled state.

The West London outfit recorded another win in their Champions League to complete a perfect run so far while they are just four points behind league leaders Liverpool in the Premier League.

However, the Blues legend Joe Cole has stated that Frank Lampard now has a “great problem” he must face in his team but it is not all negative as it sounds.

The Blues boss selected Tammy Abraham for the centre-forward position and had new signing Timo Werner on the wing against French Ligue 1 outfit Rennes and they were both impressive.

The two attackers scored in the 3-0 win and Joe Cole thinks it is a great problem for the former Chelsea midfielder because everyone is scoring and who to select will now be a headache to him.
Joe Cole showered praise of Tammy Abraham for his good movement and scoring a goal in the game.

His words while speaking to BT Sports, “It’s a great problem for Frank. All the front players are scoring and making a case, and the midfielders are getting on the ball. Tammy has given Frank something to think about.

“He kept at it and his movement was good. He didn’t do it in the first half but his goal was not easy to take”

However, Tammy Abraham has been receiving a lot of accolades since the Champions League game and he is expected to be rewarded with more appearances by the manager.

Timo Werner is another new signing that has settled well and established himself in Frank Lampard’s team. He is one of those players that have nailed a place in the team for almost all games.
