Chelsea’s Head coach Frank lampard has expressed mixed feelings on the upcoming London derby game against Arsenal Fc on boxing day. He said that Arsenal would be a difficult team to beat but the Blues look ready enough to take on one of their fiercest rivals in the premier league.
Lampard says when you play a derby match, form goes out the window and he is expecting Arsenal to be at their best on Boxing Day, which is a good attacking team.
Frank Lampard reports Ben Chilwell and Reece James are both doubtful for the next two games.
On Timo Werner being on a run of not scoring, Lampard says the goals will come as he is getting in the places to have chances.
On being in charge at a big club, Lampard explains that expectations are high but you can’t control that, so you must work day to day and bring genuine positivity.
Lampard recalls that when he joined Chelsea as a player, Arsenal had the upper hand but the team he played in challenged that and a good rivalry remains.
Returning to the subject of Werner, Lampard says the player’s honesty in what he has said about his form is a good thing, even if it gets taken in the wrong context.
Lampard confirms that Hakim Ziyech will not be fit for the Arsenal game. He hopes to have him back in the next week or so.
