Chelsea started the month of October on a bright note as the Blues defeated Crystal Palace 4-0.

Despite the fact that international break held after those games early in October, this month still has a lot of action, and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, will be navigating his side to make sure they are ready for the upcoming games.

League action will resume this weekend, but the Blues still have five games to be played within two weeks, as a hectic schedule await Chelsea.

Chelsea play host to Southampton on October 17, and then start the Champions League with a home game against Sevilla on October 20.

The Blues will then travel to Old Trafford to face Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s side on the 24th. Four days after, Chelsea will be away to Krasnodar. The Blues will end the month of October with an away trip to Burnley on October 31.

Thankfully, Lampard will be happy to have a large squad, and he’d also be praying that they remain injury free.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he’s happy with the Champions League draw, but has warned his side not to take any game for granted.

“I am happy with the draw in the fact that we analysed straightaway the teams we are playing against,” Lampard told Chelsea’s official website.

“We are very aware that every Champions League group is very tough.

“So I know a lot of the reaction afterwards was what a great draw it is for Chelsea but we can’t approach it with that mindset at all.

“They are very tough games, all the teams that we play, especially when you are travelling in Europe you always know you are going to get very competitive games.

“Sevilla won the Europa League last year, and both of the other teams are emerging teams that will cause us a lot of threats and dangers, so let’s see.”
