Every time Chelsea play West Ham it is a special match for Frank Lampard, being the match between the team where he started his career and the one that became famous.
With the Blues just one point ahead of the East Londoners heading into Monday night’s game, three points are a prerequisite.
Unfortunately, since London has only recently entered Level 4, government rules mean that the 2,000 supporters who would have been at Stamford Bridge can now only watch from home.
Without that backing, this match could prove problematic for the hosts against a West Ham resurgence.
On paper, Chelsea have a strong side, yet their fans are unhappy with Lampard’s apparent decision to play Timo Werner back on the wing, a position in which he would appear to be less of a scoring threat than if he plays in. the middle.
If the Blues go ahead and win the game, it could be said that Lampard’s lineup will be forgotten.
Werner on the wing we’re done

WHY THIS GUY STILL PLAYS WERNER ON THE WING

Werner is clearly a much more effective player as a forward, but Lampard insists on playing with him on the wing.
Why not try a 4-2-2-2 with Werner and Giroud / Abraham on top like Leipzig did with him and Poulsen? You have 3 good forwards but only one makes the team. Baffling.
