Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he has been forced to play Kai Havertz and Timo Werner out of position due to injuries in the squad.
Werner started Chelsea’s first two games of the season as a striker but has been used out wide in our last two games against West Brom and Tottenham Hotspur.
Similarly, Havertz has been asked to drift wide from his favoured No10 role.
Ahead of Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace, Lampard said: “Timo and Kai don’t necessarily have favoured positions themselves but I have a clear idea of where I want them to play.
“At the moment, injuries have not made it that possible and sometimes you have to be adaptable in those difficult times.”
