Chelsea boss Frank Lampard might have dropped plans to sign Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell in January after revealing on Friday that he has no problem in the left-back position.

Asked if the left-back position is a problem position for Chelsea, Lampard said: “No.

“I think when you look at the players we’ve got there and the quality of player, I don’t think it’s a problem.

“We just need to make sure at all times that our fullbacks – which are very important to me and how we play – that they join in a lot and have a capacity to get up and down.

“Of course defensively we have to be on it first and foremost with the back four, but I want my fullbacks to get involved a lot. And they do.

“Emerson played really well the other night, Alonso was playing in a period of games where we were winning regularly, when Azpilicueta goes over there he did it in a Premier League winning season under Jose Mourinho. So I’ve got options there.”
