Frank Lampard is finally seeing this Chelsea side ‘click’ and victory in the Premier League on Saturday could put the Blues in the top four.
The news that had been widely expected was confirmed on Friday by Chelsea manager Frank Lampard’s, during his pre-match press-conference (via Chelsea FC official) that Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic are out;
‘He (Pulisic) is not fit to play’
‘He is still suffering with his hamstring and he is not training.’
‘In midweek he was training at a low level but was not comfortable so we have to keep looking for the right solution.’
Kai Havertz has not been cleared to play in time after isolating.
The Chelsea line up vs Sheff Utd is set to see Tammy Abraham start up-front, powered either side with Timo Werner and the in-form Hakim Ziyech in-attack.
N’Golo Kante is set to continue in the deep holding position of midfield, which is where many fans have been clamouring to see the World Cup winner revert to over the last season or two.
Predicted Chelsea line up vs Sheff Utd
Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy
Defence: Reece James, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Ben Chilwell
Midfield: Mason Mount, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante
