Chelsea boss Frank Lampard fielded a 4-3-3 formation as Chelsea played away to Wolves at the Molineux Stadium on Tuesday night.

Lampard named a 3-man midfield trio of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and N’Golo Kante. The Chelsea midfield seemed overran by the hardworking Wolves midfield, with Wolves getting a 2-1 victory.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has hailed the impact of Kante in midfield, but he believes that Mount and Kai Havertz are not yet ready to play at the top beside Kante.

According to Scholes, Chelsea won’t fight for the title this season, but may do so next term.

“I just think there’s a little bit a lack of creativity on the pitch,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“(N’Golo) Kante does what he does brilliantly well and he’s got two young players next to him in Mason Mount and Kai Havertz, who I think will be sensational players, but that’s why I don’t think they’ll win the league this year.

“It’s a bit early for them.

“They’ll be up there, close to Manchester City and Liverpool I just don’t think they are that ready.”
