Frank Lampard Drops Major Hint on Chelsea Team Selection for Wolves Rematch

Frank Lampard Drops Major Hint on Chelsea Team Selection for Wolves Rematch

Frank Lampard is back in charge at Chelsea and must make a big decision on his starting lineup against Wolves.

Frank Lampard presided over a Chelsea pre-match press conference for the first time in years after being named caretaker manager for the remainder of the season. It comes as a huge surprise after the story’s quick development, which gave the hierarchy more time to decide on their next full-time appointment.

Lampard’s first task will be to get the team back on track after their 2-0 loss to Aston Villa, which cost Graham Potter his job. The Blues face an uphill battle to finish in Europe, but a win over Wolves this weekend will put them on the right track.

“I think to attempt to instil the highest level of confidence I can with the group,” Lampard said when asked about his goal before the end of the season. “They must exert and demonstrate a level of passion for playing for Chelsea, as well as urgency and energy in their game.” Those are the principles I’d like to discuss with players. In terms of goals, we want to win as many games as possible.

“It’s the simplest answer your going to get. It’s more complicated than that but at the same time I think there are big games ahead of us. Premier League is hard, Champions League is of course hard. We have to have a belief in the players we have in this squad. I’ve got a huge belief in them from the outside and I’ll tell them that today. It’s how we can take them in the right direction and of course we want to win games.”

It’s this kind of approach that could see results improve and the atmosphere around Stamford Bridge improve once more. The first trip to Wolves will provide an indication of the caretaker manager’s plans for the remaining games, and he has even hinted that he has an idea for the type of team he may field.

“I’ve been thinking about it a lot this morning, speaking to people who are going to be helping me to do this job so I have my idea about where I want to go,” the former midfielder responded when asked about how he will pick his team. “I watched the team, so credit to Bruno who took the team, credit to Graham Potter who I don’t know that well but everything I see about him, he’s a good man and a very good coach and sometimes for whatever reason things don’t align, don’t work, whatever; I’ve been in that situation personally.

“There’s nothing that I will do that will look backwards other than with a view to how we move forward. I obviously have my own ideas.” It doesn’t give away a whole lot as to the actual team he will play, but does potentially hint at moving closer towards the ideas he had in his first stint rather than relying on the current systems in place.
