Some Chelsea fans react to crazy squad depth as Blues bench Pulisic and Havertz

Frank Lampard has just announced his lineup for today’s game against Tottenham, and the Chelsea boss has pretty much been able to pick his dream XI.

The good form that the side has been in with Tammy Abraham up front and Timo Werner on the left means that the manager has left the returning Christian Pulisic on the bench.

A few months ago that would have caused uproar, as the US international starred in the post-lockdown period.

But the injuries and bad form he’s suffered since mean that nobody is surprised to see him left on the bench today as a potential weapon to use in the second half.

Fans on social media were just happy to see him back in the matchday squad, rather than desperate for him to start.

Most pointed to the crazy depth we’ve got now, with two amazing players like Havertz and Pulisic both on the bench.

  1. A match against team like Tottenham;Manchester City and Liverpool need very strong line up.Pulisic and Havertz are such players that can cause trouble for any oppenent.Why must Lampard bench them?What kind of love does the Coach has to Abraham and Mount respectively….? Wrong substitutions…You sub Werner fr Puli and Ziyech for Giroud while Abraham and Mount are strughling.Lampard should learn from Pep Gardiola and Jurgen Klop.

  2. Team selection was poor,today Giroud was to start upfront not Abraham,and Havertz in second half for Mount

  3. Lampard is just a DICKHEAD I know for sure if Timo Werner was playing at the flag in Leipzig,Lampard won’t have go for him.If Lampard play Chilwell or Sylva out of position he understand what will be the outcome. Lampard pls stop playing Timo out of his position, learn from your mistake on Kante last season.
