Chelsea boss Frank Lampard seems to have gotten the core of his team and the Blues boss is no longer rotating his squad as he used to.
Lampard has been using a certain core to play games of recent, but he has now revealed that he’d rotate the side that will play against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
According to Lampard, he’d give playing time to those who haven’t really been getting minutes, and he admitted that a lot of senior players who haven’t featured regularly will get their opportunity.
Lampard said in his press conference ahead of the game: “I have to be aware of the fact that we haven’t changed the team very much.
“That’s my prerogative when I think the team is playing pretty well but this game may be an opportunity for other players who are not playing.
“It’s not necessarily to do with age, more to do with minutes in games and that might mean some of the more experienced players who haven’t played as much will have an opportunity.”
Lampard will need to rotate his squad over the next couple of games as the Blues have four games to play in less than two weeks.
He also added: “The [physical] output from the last two games has been really strong for a lot of players so we have to look at that side as well, to take into account rest and strains on the body for the players.”
