BOU vs CHE: Players Who Could Make The Difference If Frank Lampard Starts Them Against Bournemouth
With 5 matches remaining, Chelsea cannot afford to drop points again, else they might find themselves in the relegation zone.
The Cherries currently have the same points as Chelsea and could drag the Blues further down the table if they win on Saturday.
To avoid a 7th consecutive defeat, here are the 11 players that could make the difference if Frank Lampard starts them.
Kepa has been conceding lots of goals recently, so it wouldn’t hurt if Lampard puts his faith in Edouard Mendy to help Chelsea keep a clean sheet against Bournemouth.
A potential four-man defence comprising of Chalobah, Wesley Fofana, Badiashile and Chilwell possess all the qualities needed to go to the Vitality Stadium and prevent the hosts from having a sniff at their goal.
Then in midfield, Carney Chukwuemeka who impressed during the time of Graham Potter can also make the difference by dictating the tempo of the game from midfield alongside N’golo Kanté and Enzo Fernandez.
In attack, David Datro Fofana, Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke should all start.
Madueke had a good outing against Arsenal yesterday while Mudryk came on in the second half and was the only Chelsea player to create the most chances (3) despite playing for just 19 minutes.
With Aubameyang and Sterling both underwhelming, it makes perfect sense to start these two wingers alongside Datro Fofana who would be eager to impress if drafted into the starting lineup.
