Following their impressive performance in the 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he is set to give Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva another game in defence.

The 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace was the first clean sheet for Chelsea in the Premier League this season in five attempts and it comes after the Blues conceded 54 league goals last term.

“I am really pleased with the clean sheet for everybody involved,” Lampard said at Stamford Bridge.

“Not just the goalkeeper and the back four but the whole team. We didn’t give a really dangerous team away from home any chances to score which was great for the focus of the team.

“Yes, Thiago and Kurt looked very good, very composed. With Thiago, he has great experience and we saw that. It is still early days in terms of fitness, so let’s see how that partnership works but I want to find some sort of stability in the back four, of course, you do.

“It needs some competition and those two showed how well they can do it but that needs to continue.”
