‘Is this a joke?’ – Chelsea fans left stunned by Frank Lampard’s team selection at Leicester

Frank Lampard certainly threw in a couple of surprises when Chelsea’s team was announced against Leicester City this afternoon.

The biggest shock was the world’s most expensive goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped to the bench, to be replaced by Willy Caballero.

It was the first time that the Blues boss had done that in a Premier League match this season, and it certainly surprised the Blues supporters.

The other big change was that Pedro starts the game at the King Power Stadium, with Willian dropped to the bench.

Mateo Kovacic is one of the substitutes, with Mason Mount starting in the middle of the park with N’Golo Kante and Jorginho.

Olivier Giroud was subject to a lot of deadline day transfer news, however he didn’t get the move that he wanted. But the Frenchman wasn’t even named as part of the squad.

And for Blues supporters, they weren’t particularly thrilled with the team that Lampard put out against the Foxes in a big top four clash.
