Here is the Chelsea digest on Sunday, September 6.
Pulisic could force Lampard into changing Werner plans
Christian Pulisic could force Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to alter his plans surrounding new signing Timo Werner, as Rob Guest writes.
Pulisic hurt his hamstring in last month’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal, and it remains unclear whether he’ll be ready for the trip down to Brighton & Hove Albion in just over a weeks’ time.
Lampard has a few players he can pick to play on the left wing, including Werner, who has recently signed from RB Leipzig.

Werner is predominantly a centre-forward but has been shifted out wide on occasions, and if the USA winger does miss out – we could see Lampard play Olivier Giroud through the middle and the German on the wing.
Havertz can take Blues quartet to next level
Chelsea’s latest signing Kai Havertz can take the Blues quartet of himself, Hakim Ziyech, Pulisic and Werner to the next level, as Rob Guest explains.
The arrival of Havertz must have relieved Chelsea supporters after months of speculation over the German international’s future.
The addition of the 21-year-old means Lampard could play with a frightening front four of Ziyech, Havertz, Werner, and Pulisic next season – enough to give any defender a scare.

That quartet could be the next step for Chelsea, as they look to somehow close the gap between themselves, Liverpool, and Manchester City.
