Frank Lampard Backs Mourinho’s Fixture Complaints Ahead Of Derby

Frank Lampard Backs Mourinho's Fixture Complaints Ahead Of Derby

Frank Lampard has sympathised with Jose Mourinho over schedule congestion.

Both managers meet for a thrilling London derby on Sunday but Chelsea will have two extra days to prepare.

Due to Europa League commitments, Tottenham will be playing on Thursday night against LASK and then heading back to England to face the Blues. With travel and player fatigue, one can understand how Spurs might have a disadvantage in this tie.

Lampard believes Mourinho is right to complain about his club’s fixture congestion as he said, “Yes [I am sympathetic].

“I’m not sure what team Jose can pick for Thursday. He’s got a strong squad and he can make rotations. But if you’re not going to get up ready to attack a London derby, then you shouldn’t be in this game.”

To be very honest, Mourinho isn’t the first manager to complain about this issue and this season he won’t be the last. Due to a smaller window to host the season, many teams will undergo similar circumstances, especially if you are going deep in all competitions.

Tottenham have a deep enough squad but their Europa League aspirations will need to be kept in mind as well.

Chelsea Players On International Duty

0
Chelsea Players On International Duty

The international break happened this week and some Chelsea players were defending their countries. Among them, Jorginho, playing for Italy, and Olivier Giroud, playing for France, were certainly among the best. That goes also to Edouard Mendy with Senegal.

Let’s see how some of the Blues did in this international break.

Italy

Counting with both Jorginho and Emerson from the Blues, the Italians won the game by 2-0 against Poland, for the Nations League. And what an amazing night for Chelsea’s number 5 and vice-captain, he opened the scoring after converting a penalty at the 27th minute. That was Jorginho’s first goal in the Nations League.

The final numbers were given by Berardi, confirming the 2-0 victory and putting Italy on the top of the Group 1 table, with 9 points.

Denmark

Andreas Christensen played the full 90 minutes in the duel between Denmark and Iceland. Chelsea’s number 4, unfortunately, wasn’t able to secure a clean sheet, as the Danish team won the match by 2-1.

Both goals were scored by Eriksen and both of them came with a penalty. On the other hand, Kjartansson scored for the Icelanders. With the victory, Denmark are the second place of Group 2 with 10 points.

England

For the Blues playing for England, the night was not good. They faced Belgium and lost by 2-0, with goals from Tielemans and Mertens still in the first half.

England NT counted with two players from the Blues in their starting line-up, Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell, and one in the bench, Tammy Abraham. The night didn’t end well for Chelsea’s number 21, as he left the pitch injured and might be a problem for Frank Lampard in the duel against Newcastle.

On Belgium’s side, some former Blues celebrated the victory and the first place of Group 2, as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and striker Romelu Lukaku were among the starting XI.

Wales

Ethan Ampadu, who is currently on loan to Sheffield United, participated in the whole match between Wales and Ireland, where the Welsh left with a 1-0 victory. The goal of the match was scored by Brooks with an assist by Bale.

With that, Ampadu’s national team leads Group 4 in League B with 13. They are just one point ahead of second-place Finland, who will be their next opponents for the last matchday of the Group stage of the Nations League.

France

For matchday 6 of the Nations League, we certainly have Oliver Giroud as a highlight. Chelsea’s number 18 scored 2 goals in the 4-2 victory of France over Sweden and guaranteed his country the first place of Group 3, with 16 points. 

The other goals from France were scored by Pavard and Coman, while Claesson and Qualoin scored for Sweden.

There are four remaining national teams for us to go through. This article was created, following thorough labour research from our author, Kate Richardson. You can check her profile here.

Croatia

Also for Group 3 of the Nations League, another Blue was able to score twice but didn’t have such a good night. Mateo Kovacic scored the two goals from Croatia in the 3-2 defeat against Portugal.

With that, the Croatian team kept with the same 3 points, occupying the third place of Group 3.

Germany

What a terrible night for Chelsea’s new number 11. With his country, Timo Werner didn’t play well and still saw Germany lose by 6-0 to Spain.

The young striker didn’t play the whole match, being only 77 minutes on the pitch, but he was not able to help his country, who ended up suffering a terrible defeat. Even with that, Germany kept in second place, with 9 points. However, they could lose the position depending on how the match between Ukraine and Switzerland goes.

Senegal

Leaving Europe and going to Africa, another Blue was able to have a nice international break. With Senegal National Team, Edouard Mendy accumulated another clean sheet after his country’s victory over Guinea-Bissau by 1-0.

The only goal from the match was scored by Mane at the 72nd minute. The victory caused Mendy’s national team to be the first one guaranteed in the final stage of the African Cup of Nations, with 12 points in 4 matches, meaning the country won all their matches so far.

Morocco

Another good night in Africa for the Blues. Hakim Ziyech played really well with his country and scored the first goal in the 2-0 victory over the Central African Republic.

With that, Morocco occupies the first place in their Group in the qualifying phase of the African Cup of Nations, with 10 points, and is very close from qualifying to the competition.

Conclusion

Chelsea Players While On International Duty

Whether you like the international break or not, it is a fact that it’s losing space amongst fans. It’s a general consent that European football fans would 100% prefer to see players playing for their respective clubs rather than for National teams. 

The most frustrating point is when clubs concede players to national teams and or they don’t play at all – thus, only lose time on international duty – or they come back injured – which is the worst option, and it seems it’s getting more common nowadays.

Mount Wants Chelsea To Win PL This Season

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount wants the Blues to win the title this season.

Chelsea has built up a stellar squad, with world class signings and a wide range of players – and Mount is confident of challenging other clubs for the title.

“It’s always been our goal [to win the title],” Mount said in a pre-match press conference. “We know what we can achieve, and we know the level of the players in this group.

“We can never be content with being top of the group in the Champions League and going to the top of the league and being around it; we can never be content with that. We know what we can do and our goal is always to be No 1 and push for titles. We know we can do that.

“The most important thing at the moment is to try to keep the momentum going. Go from game to game and try to go into each one with the mentality of winning it. When you keep that going, you go into every game wanting to win.

“We are in a good place at the moment but we can’t get carried away. It is exciting times, but we’re so ready to keep working hard.”

Frank Lampard wants Giroud to stay amid exit rumours

Frank Lampard wants Giroud to stay amid exit rumours
Bildbyran

Frank Lampard claims Olivier Giroud is part of his plans at Chelsea.

Olivier Giroud was an important part when Chelsea secured a top-four Premier League finish last season.

The forward who scored eight goals in their final 12 games has just played 36 minutes in the Premier League so far this season.

The French striker might push for a move away from Stamford Bridge this January.

Giroud told Telefoot: ‘It’s worrying. I thought I still had a role to play at Chelsea, but my playing time is getting reduced a lot. It’s going to have to change, or else I must make a decision.’

But Frank Lampard said: ‘He was very important last year, he played a lot of games and made a lot of starts. He’ll always want to play more but he’s a huge member of the squad for me.’

‘I know he will be important for us going forward, so I want Oli to be here and to stay.

‘I have a very good relationship with Oli and if ever he felt that it was going to go a different way then I would happily have that conversation with him.

‘But I want him to stay here. I’m open both ways if that ever changes but at the moment he is very important for us.’

Chelsea are a team who are in transition this once again season. They were hit with a transfer ban last season. They have now signed a lot of players in the summer. They have kept on Frank Lampard as head coach.

Frank Lampard has taken a new approach at Chelsea. Since he was not able to sign any new players at the club last season, Frank has had to restore to the club’s youth pool. He got the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, Billy Gilmour and Fikayo Tomori their major break in the squad of Chelsea.

Chelsea keep winning one week and losing the next. However, it is only natural for the Blues. They are a young side and are learning every week. They, however, do keep entertaining the fans.

Chelsea Must Be Tough On Each Other To Win Trophies – Mason Mount

Chelsea Must Be Tough On Each Other To Win Trophies - Mason Mount

Mason Mount understands the need to push his teammates in training.

Chelsea won 2-0 over Newcastle United on Saturday, going up to the top of the Premier League for a short while.

Mount told the club’s website, “I said to Timo in the first half, ‘that’s a goal for you, you need to score them’ because I’ve seen them go in day-in and day-out in training.

“He’s a top player and he needs to be harsh on himself to score those. He knows that and, if it comes next week, he’ll put it away.

“I was disappointed with my one as well because I feel I should be scoring those. We’re all tough on each other and tough on ourselves because we want to be pushing to get number one.

“We need to have that in the group where if someone doesn’t score or makes a mistake, we can tell them. Chelsea teams in the past had that in their group and we need the same in our group. If we do, we’ll have a top chance of winning trophies.”

We can all see why Frank Lampard favours Mount so much. He has that leadership quality in him even at such at young age.

Kante back in full form after Newcastle win amid Inter links

Kante back in full form after Newcastle win amid Inter links
Bildbyran

N’Golo Kante impressed as he came back to full form in Saturday’s 2-0 Newscastle win.

Frank Lampard had been patiently waiting for the midfielder to get back into action and looks like his efforts have paid off.

“We have had an injury-free period to get him to a place we are really happy with,” Lampard said of Kante’s fitness.

“We keep a check on his training and how much distance he travels because every time we allow him off the leash in training, he does a ridiculous amount of work because of the way he plays.

“So, we are very aware of that and are very careful with him. As a result, we are in a good place with him, so hopefully that continues.”

Moreover, Kante has been linked to a move to Inter Milan, and reuniting with former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte. However, Frank Lampard is simply ignoring these rumours and is intent on keeping N’Golo Kante on at Stamford Bridge.

“I have so much faith in him and the top midfield player that he is,” he added. “It’s not just about breaking up play and winning the ball back, even though we know that is a huge quality of his.

“It’s also about his passing and his support play in midfield. Moving into that deeper role has been a very comfortable transition for him, so we’re just really, really happy with him.”

Frank Lampard sent strong Timo Werner warning following Newcastle win

Frank Lampard sent strong Timo Werner warning following Newcastle win
Bildbyran

Frank Lampard advised playing Timo Werner from the centre.

Timo Werner who arrived from RB Leipzig in a deal worth £47.6million is enjoying a fantastic debut season at the Premier League.

The German striker has amassed over eight goals and provided four assists in all competitions this campaign.

But former Arsenal player Ian Wright insists Lampard should play him through the middle instead of deploying him from the left in a three-man attack.

 

View this post on Instagram

 

A post shared by Chelsea FC (@chelseafc)

He said: “I think that suits Timo coming from there, coming from deep.

“You saw with Tammy’s goal he went past the defenders like they weren’t there, he set Tammy up and he finished well.

“He seems to play off a front man better.”

Ian Wright was unimpressed by Chelsea’s finishing at Newcastle United and said: “It could’ve been too comfortable there and like Frank said they missed chances and they need to be a lot more ruthless if they are going to go on and get into that top four, or really challenge simply because it could have been a lot easier than it was,” Wright said of Chelsea’s fifth win of the season.”

“You can go to a place like Newcastle and if you are that wasteful they can get you and come back and maybe nick one.

“I think today I thought Tammy was a lot better with his movement and got his goal in the end and Timo Werner he was kind of wasteful with the kind of chances that we know he normally will take.

“But other than that it could’ve been a lot more comfortable.”
