Chelsea Football Club’s performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium yesterday was yet another letdown in the English Premier League. The Blues were expected to grind out a win in this match and return to winning ways in the competition this season. Surprisingly, Wolves performed better in the game, winning 1-0 over the Blues thanks to a stunning goal from Matheus Nunes.
Frank Lampard, Chelsea Caretaker Manager, Frank Lampard’s return to the Chelsea team, on the other hand, did not produce a positive result, which could have led to fans losing faith in him as the team’s caretaker manager.
Frank Lampard did two things in this game that I will discuss in this article to demonstrate why he can be trusted by Chelsea this season. Let us investigate.
1, Substituting Poor Performers
Graham Potter, the English Manager at Chelsea, found it difficult to bench or substitute Kai Havertz, even when he was contributing anything productive to the team’s performance. Frank Lampard demonstrated that he is a no-nonsense manager by replacing Joao Felix and Kai Havertz, who were not performing well in the match.
Frank Lampard demonstrated his versatility as a manager by making several changes to Chelsea’s starting lineup, which differed significantly from Graham Potter’s. The English Manager came out with a different idea and set of players, even if it didn’t eventually get the Blues back on track in the competition.
It demonstrates that he isn’t a one-trick pony, as he tends to make changes in the team when one of his strategies fails to work for the Blues.
