Chelsea played Everton without a recognised winger, with Frank Lampard naming a front three of Kai Havertz, Olivier Giroud and Timo Werner.

It didn’t work out for Chelsea against the Toffees, as the Blues lost the game 1-0.

Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi were ruled out ahead of the game, but it was a surprise that Christian Pulisic also didn’t feature.

Speaking to BT Sports ahead of the Everton game, Lampard revealed that he had to rest Pulisic due to his muscle issues, but said that the American will be back to face Wolves on Tuesday.

Lampard told BT Sport before kick off against Everton: “Christian has a bit of awareness in his hamstring. He’s been training through the week but he felt some awareness and we simply can’t risk him.

“We have seen two wingers go down recently, Ziyech last week and Callum in training. We are coming up to a busy period in the season.

“As we keep saying, players are getting a lot of muscle injuries. Christian wasn’t ready quite, but hopefully for Tuesday night, we will find out next week.”
