Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has a wealth of quality players in midfield as he has the likes of Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount for just three different positions.
Lampard has had to play the trio of Kovacic who is in super form, Jorginho and midfield engine N’Golo Kante in our last two matches.
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin is in awe of the quality of players in the Chelsea midfield while also admitting that Jorginho seems undroppable at the moment.
He wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “It is a tough call now for Frank Lampard every week, deciding who sits on the bench between Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mason Mount. You could start all four but then Christian Pulisic would have to be sacrificed and that would be harsh as he scored again and is now arriving in the box with the best of them. Of course it is a good problem to have and there probably isn’t a ‘right answer’. For different games different solutions will be needed. Most importantly, the starting three will not always be the finishing three, but to be fair no one prefers to be the super sub.
“At the moment Jorginho looks undroppable. When he was subbed against Valencia we suddenly had far less possession. N’Golo has scored one and made one in the last two games as well as playing like his usual super-hero self. So it may well be a choice between Kovacic and Mount, which is a tough call that will only get more complicated when Ruben Loftus-Cheek returns.
“It is not a problem, it is a positive dilemma that these decisions are not easy.”
