Chelsea have made a huge number of signings this summer, with Edouard Mendy becoming the seventh first team signing of the summer, having completed a move on Thursday.

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz are the two regular players we have seen from all the newbies, while Thiago Silva was given an hour in the Carabao Cup third round tie against Barnsley. Ben Chilwell was introduced in the latter part of the second half against Brighton as well.

Speaking ahead of West Brom clash, Lampard has revealed that he’d rotate his new players in the upcoming games, as he is set to play three games in one week.

Lampard said in his press conference: “We play another game with a pretty tight turnaround on Tuesday and then another game on Saturday, and then some international players will maybe go and play three games for their countries so I am managing that one.

“But having come through the game the other day as they did, particularly Thiago who did start that game and has 60 minutes in the tank, that was good to see. With Ben I will maybe be a little more cautious just to make sure. His injury had been quite a challenging one and I will make those calls, but they are in a good place at the moment.”
