Ahead of Chelsea’s visit to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed what he expects from his full-backs.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Lampard said: “What we’re also trying to do is get our full-backs in to play.

“We all know that in modern football, the full-back is the fancy thing and Liverpool have probably set that tone in the last two years with the amount of assists they’re getting from out wide.

“So we do ask for that if Willian does want to end up in the inside pockets, which we’re very happy and comfortable for him and [Christian] Pulisic, Callum [Hudson-Odoi], Pedro, those kind of players to be there.

“Can we join in and when we’re joining in, can we then become that two again when you have a little bit of security because you’re happy to let the full-backs push on.”
