According to the SunFrank Lampard has made a family change to Chelsea’s pre-game routine due to the team’s hectic schedule of late.
The Blues have just emerged from the match frenzy that saw them play the Premier League and Champions League playoffs, with another busy schedule ahead with the Christmas and New Year period.
Lampard has reportedly eliminated the need for the team to stay in a hotel the night before home games, to a measure that allows players to stay home and, in turn, spend more time with their families. .
Chelsea will face a clash with London rivals West Ham on Monday night, putting pressure on the Blues to come out with a comfortable victory after back-to-back losses to Everton and Wolves.
