Former Blues goalkeeper is not a big fan of Antonio Rudiger.
Ex-Blues goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer believes Rudiger is not good enough to play for Chelsea and Frank Lampard should opt for other better options available to him.
Out-of-favour Fikayo Tomori is edging closer to joining Italian side AC Milan.
Summer signing and Thiago Silva are Lampard’s go-to centre-backs for the Chelsea squad.

“I’m very surprised Rudiger is back in the side because I don’t think he’s that great a defender,” Schwarzer told Stadium Astro.
“I don’t think he’s good enough to play for Chelsea. I think he has had enough opportunities.
“Yes, last season or the season before he had a lot of injury issues, but I think Kurt Zouma next to Silva is the best combination. They showed a couple of weeks ago how good they are together.
“They are going to have a dip in form sometimes but I’d look to keep it simple, play a way into form.
“[Andreas] Christensen, I think, is a good player to have there or thereabouts if you need him. Tomori as well, I would play him ahead of Rudiger. I’m surprised that Tomori is out of the side altogether. “
