Ahead of tonight’s game against Watford, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard explained reason for his team selection.

Lampard made two changes to his defence, with Kurt Zouma and Reece James replacing Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso.

Explaining reason for the changes, Lampard said: “It was a mixture.

“A lot of teams are making changes for fitness, a game every three days is tough anyway.

“But we made some big mistakes on the day. I’m certainly not one to pick out individuals, maybe that’s one for behind closed doors, to look at things but collectively we have to accept what happened, collectively we have to put it right, no matter the personnel.”
