Chelsea take on Newcastle United tomorrow in the Premier League as they look to continue their excellent form.
The Blues were excellent before the international break, going eight games unbeaten and really starting to click both attacking and defensively.
However, Lampard’s side have had two weeks off and the Blues boss has had little time to work with the rest of his squad.
So how should they line up against the Magpies? football.london’s writers have their say.

Frank Lampard will be keen to make sure that he players are not suffering too much from the international break and his players having been dotted around the world.
Thiago Silva will be missing, so the big question is who would replace him, and it could be a chance for Andreas Christensen to come back into the starting XI.
Lampard is expected to go with the 4-3-3 formation, but with Kai Havertz training on his own it could be Mateo Kovacic along with Mason Mount and N’Golo Kante.
If Timo Werner is fit to start then it’s likely he will play on the left, with Tammy Abraham up top and Hakim Ziyech looking to keep his superb form going on the right.
Harbord’s team: Mendy; James, Zouma, Christensen, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Ziyech, Abraham, Werner.
Frank Lampard will have one big decision on his mind when he picks his Chelsea team to take on Newcastle at St James’ Park.
That is over who plays at left-back for the Blues boss. He will have been boosted by Ben Chilwell being on the bench for England in midweek and not seeing any further game time for the national team on Wednesday so the defender should be OK to start in the north east.
