The Blues are in action for the final time before another international break and the hosts can be confident of finishing this period on a high.

Chris Wilder’s side have been struggling this term after a remarkable campaign in 2019/20 saw them finish ninth, having being tipped to struggle by many.

Pre -match press conference with Chelsea manager Frank Lampard ahead of the Premier League clash with Leicester. Frank Lampard has endured a less-than-ideal start to his first season as Chelsea boss. His squad suffered a resounding 4-0 defeat by Manchester United in their opening

Here are the key points from the Chelsea boss…

Title race

”We have to wait. A long way to go. The start has been open, some unexpected results but it may level itself out. I won’t jump ahead too much at the moment but it is open.”

Christian Pulisic

”Not fit to play, still suffering with his hamstring. He’s not training at the moment.”

Sheffield United

”It’s a big challenge. They are an amazing team, an incredible manager. The manager is not false but nowhere near being a guideline of what to expect. They are still a great team. A very, very tough match.”


The prognosis on Pulisic was to be expected, but Blues fans can keep their fingers crossed that another break comes at a timely interval and allows both the American and Kai Havertz to recover nicely.

Lampard is also right not to underestimate tomorrow’s visitors despite their poor start to the season. After all, Wilder’s men picked up four points from matches against the Blues last season, including a resounding 3-0 victory in July.
