Tomori returns and Mason Mount plays out wide as Lampard sticks with 3 man defence » Chelsea News

Frank Lampard has just given his press conference ahead of Chelsea’s game with Bournemouth, and there was plenty of team news.

The Chelsea manager said that he hadn’t had a falling out with Kepa, but made no hint that it would be anything other than Willy starting in goal for the sixth game in a row.

As for the formation, we reckon he sticks with the 3421 just because CHO and Pulisic are out injured.

That means Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen in the back 3, and we reckon this is going to be Fikayo Tomori’s chance to play in place of the disappointing Antonio Rudiger.

At wing back, Reece James is a cert, and Marcos Alonso‘s goal threat probably gets him the nod over Emerson, despite his red in the week.

Midfield sees Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic pick themselves with N’Golo Kante out injured.

The front three will have Olivier Giroud leading the line, with Willian and Mason Mount playing in the half-spaces either side trying to connect him with the wing backs.
